    Since the piles of bread will not be picked up by the owner or city we would like to have the alley baited for the rats that feed at the bread buffet see other requests for cleaning of alley and parking lot where bread is being dumped on a regular basis. Do not close issue unless an update can be provided on the part of the city to either bait the alley, contact the owner of the lot to request regular cleaning of the parking lot of bread being dumped or issuing a warning to the owner of the lot for not maintaining or resolving the dumping of food in their property.
