For the second year in a row, the Downtown Victoria Business Association will dish out cash to help deter seagulls in the downtown.
“Aerial bombings” from gulls is a problem on the rise, said association general manager Ken Kelly.
“Last summer was a particularly difficult time for seagull droppings.”
In response, the DVBA offered businesses within its boundaries a 50 per cent grant toward the cost of installing gull deterrents on roofs and awnings, up to $350.
It awarded the grants to 23 property owners
This year, the grant continues. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
