For those who missed today's meeting -----
Colgate will have a rat eradication program beginning about November 30, depending on when the community before us finishes and on the weather. Signs will be posted at that time. Code Enforcement will perform a community sweep following the extermination. This sweep will look for rat related violations and will have immediate citations issued for those violations found.  




Add this event to your plans!   Volunteers are needed to make this successful.  If you can help please email us at

The North Point Outreach Team will be presenting a program entitled "Civilian Response to an Active Shooter". The program will feature the latest known tactics for dealing with an active shooter.

We are planning to have this on Wednesday October 21st at 6:30 PM.

We need to know how many people will be attending before we reserve a location that will be suitable for the size of the audience.

This is not just for community association presidents. If you are familiar with people within your neighborhood who are interested please pass the information along, however we do need a head count to plan for attendance.

We have added a Local Business Directory to the site! Please look on the left side of the page for the link to resident who operating or own businesses and live right here in Colgate!! If you want to be included in the directory, please email us at!

We want to thank the Dundalk Renaissance Corporation for assisting in bringing in the kids from New Horizons II! These teens went through Colgate helping to clean up the neighborhood, picking up trash and paint notices at storm drains to help prevent runoff in the Bay!



Rats reproduce every three weeks, yielding 5-6 in each litter.  So if you see a rat, there’s likely at least 6 in your area.


In 3 weeks there will be 36

In 6 weeks there will be 216

In 9 weeks there will be 1,296

In 12 weeks there will be 7, 776


Still think it shouldn’t be reported if someone isn’t properly disposing their garbage? 

Without food, rats die in four months.  With eradication and proactive residents, we can eliminate a lot of the rat population.  They will simply go to an area where they can get food.

Rat complaints can be sent via the County website or through the Colgate Improvement Association.  In both cases, you can remain anonymous.
