The Town of Tecumseh has a new plan to help homeowners get rid of rats.

The town is piloting a project that will subsidize the cost of eradicating rodents from residential properties.

If approved by council, property owners would apply for a rebate if they hire an approved pest control company.

More details will be released once the town selects a service provider.
