Fair Grounds Field Update

How about an update on the BATS of Fair Grounds Field? Thanks to Sam Stroope, who started the Facebook Page, "Rescue Fair Grounds Field," I was able to contact Rob McKay with Wildlife Abatement.  

I put McKay in touch with Rod Richardson, the Director of Communications for the city of Shreveport.  After those two gentlemen had a conversation, I spoke with McKay, who is currently working two bat excavation jobs.  When he was told the city has been quoted a $500,000 fee to guarantee the bats removal from FGF he said, "I've never seen a job where it costs more than $10,000 to take care of the problem."  Richardson also liked the idea of saving the city a significant sum of money.

McKay told me he could take a look at the situation at FGF next week, if the city asks for his assistance.  Sounds to me like a no-brainer. A $10,000 roll of the dice that could net significant savings for the city along with hundreds of bats.
