KENMORE POLICE WARNING - Please remember to lock you car!  There have been reported break-ins of unlocked cars.

 RATS/RODENTS

If you see a rat on your property, immediately contact ERIE COUNTY VECTOR CONTROL at 716/961-6800.  Only the County can bait your property.  Please note that they cannot bait inside your home or garage, so if you see a rat inside a structure, you will need to hire a pest-control company to bait these spaces.  The Village cannot bait properties.  You can help:

 

  1. KEEP THE LID CLOSED!  This simple step will eliminate access to your garbage (a primary rodent food source).

  2. PICK UP AFTER YOUR PET.  Pick up any animal waste in your yard. This is also a food source for rats.

  3. RAISE WOOD PILES OFF OF THE GROUND  Rats like to live in wood piles.

  4. SKIP THE BIRDSEED!  Bird seed (and bread) spills over onto the ground attracting rats. Please note that under Erie County and Village law, bird feeders can only be used which are designed to prevent seed from dropping out of the feeder.

  5. CUT DOWN WEEDS.  Overgrowth of weeds is a prime harbor for rats. Please cut down weeds located on your property. Typical problem areas include that space behind your garage and around/between fences.

  6. DON'T ALLOW WATER TO POOL/COLLECT.  especially during dry spells. Rats are looking for water sources and a puddle area on your driveway or patio will attract them. Do not leave out water for your pets or for birds as this will attract rats, too.

  7. LET US KNOW IF YOU SEE A RAT– Or if you observe your neighbors violating any of the above steps. While the Village cannot bait, we may be able to help identify the source location of the rats and will send out literature to advise your neighbors to the problem and to remind them of steps needing to be taken to get rid of the problem.

  8. DON'T LEAVE FOOD or WATER OUTSIDE FOR CATS or DOGS - Leaving food/water outside for animals is an invitation to rats!  It's also illegal to ground feed animals.

  

Seeking your help in the event of bad weather.

High winds:  Please bring totes in as soon as possible and please pick up any debris that might have fallen out if your tote tipped over.

  

POLICE INFO

 

Peddlers

 

All peddlers are required to obtain a permit from the Village to conduct door to door business.  You can ask to see this permit.  If a peddler cannot produce a permit, please contact the Clerk/Treasurer's Office (873-5700) or the Kenmore Police (875-1234) so that we can follow-up on this.

 

If you do not wish to have peddlers come to your home, simply post a sign on your door to that effect.

We recommend that you do not invite peddlers into your home, and that you do not give any personal information or cash to a peddler.

You can request that a peddler leave.

 

Any problems, please contact the Kenmore Police Department, as soon as possible - 716 875-1234.

 

For more information on Peddlers, please check out the Kenmore Municipal Code, Chapter 16.

 

 

WARNING -  Phone scam alerts

Do not give out any information from any caller from National Grid.  Village residents have been receiving calls from persons stating that they are from National Grid, and that without an immediate payment, the utility will be turned off.  DO NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION.  Utility Companies cannot turn off electric or gas service without prior written notification.

 

Do not reply to any phone call/voicemail requesting information from the CITY of Kenmore.  There is a scam where the caller says they are calling to get permission to release information on file with the CITY of Kenmore (not the Village).  The voicemail requests a call-back to an 855 exchange and even gives a reference number.  The Village of Kenmore would not make such a call.  We also do not have a toll-free number.  Please contact the Kenmore Police Department if you should receive a call requesting personal information over the phone (716/875-1234)

 

NEVER provide personal information over the phone, especially social security number, credit card number or bank account information.   

 

HIGH TEMPS - Things you can do to help:

 

Stay Hydrated - drink lots of water

Don't leave children and pets in your car

Help avoid brown outs - turn off/down your air conditioning while you're out of the house to conserve energy.  Report outages to National Grid at 1-800-867-5222.

Check in on your neighbors, especially those without air conditioning.
