3rd Gets Rat-proof Trash Cans

Activists Rick Swinger got his rat-free trash cans for 3rd Ave in Venice.  Swinger has championed the cans publicly since he asked for them at the original town hall years ago.  They have been in the works somewhere since then.

At one time, the Venice Update offered to pay for them, and then Rick said he would split the cost.  That got filed along with the original request.  Everyone knows that rat-free trash cans keep the rats hungry.  Hungry rats leave the area.  Google now has rat traps on their property because of a health department inspection requested by Swinger for 3rd Ave.  He has also asked all vendors and service agencies to stop dumping food on 3rd but that request has hit deaf ears.
