Residents Howl About Coyotes, Rye City Council Schedules Meeting

Rye is scheduling a pubic meeting about coyotes. Asked if there was a heightened number of coyotes, coyote sightings or other related activity, Rye City Manager Marcus Serrano told MyRye.com "The City Council and I received calls from a a few residents of seeing coyotes. There was a similar presentation years ago and it was decide that this would be a good opportunity to provide the information again."

The coyote meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 8:30pm at 1051 Boston Post Road, Rye, NY in the City Council Chambers.
