Rochester's Crow Conundrum | Business
Does more need to be done to get the crows out of Rochester? Many people would say the answer is yes and one of those is the Executive Director of the Rochester Downtown Alliance, Jon Eckhoff.
Eckhoff says he's been getting an earful from business and property owners in Rochester's historic 3rd Street area.
The sidewalks in that section of the city were recently cleaned, but you can still see the remnants of the crows presence in the trees and on roof tops.
Eckhoff says the city's original plan of pushing the crows south of the downtown area worked, but not nearly well enough.
"I think we're going to need to take a look at a way to curb the crow population. It's the population of crows, more than just the location. I for one just don't want to push the problem around. I think we need to address it as a city wide or a county wide issue," says Eckhoff.
Rochester's Committee of the Whole is expected to take up the issue Monday afternoon. We'll keep you posted.
