Raccoons 1, Council 0?

    Some people think they’re cute and furry.  Some people think they are large, dangerous vermin.  Raccoons.  Urban raccoons. 

    So who does the hard working, law abiding, tax paying citizen turn to when raccoons are sauntering down the block?  When Councilman Darrell Clarke passed his raccoon abatement bill last June, he thought that the bill would impel the city to step in and help. 

    Too bad the city doesn’t agree.

    On this week’s It’s Our Money Juliana Reyes of the CityHowl desk tries to figure out why the city has no intention of upholding Clarke’s raccoon abatement law.
