Green Bay city inspectors will expand search for rats

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - When someone complains about rats in Green Bay, city inspectors will no longer limit themselves to searching the property for rats and what's attracting them.

Tuesday, the Green Bay City Council approved a proposal asking inspectors to be more proactive in addressing rat complaints.

Following an increase in calls about rats over the past few months, the Protection and Welfare Committee passed a measure last week to ask inspectors to examine an entire block, not just the site of the complaint.

City officials say it won't cost more, though it may take up more of the inspectors' time.
