The troubled caretakers of the Alamo are facing more problems: rats and rent payment woes.

The Daughters of the Republic of Texas are already in jeopardy of losing stewardship of the Alamo after 106 years. On top of that, the San Antonio Express-News reported Tuesday that the group is having trouble paying rent and utilities at its Austin headquarters.

According to minutes of an April meeting, the Daughters had no money to pay bills or several employee salaries. It also contained a note that read, "The newest problem is rats!"

Alamo spokesman Tony Caridi said the problems in Austin don't reflect on the management of the Alamo in San Antonio.

Lawmakers may strip the Daughters of their caretaker role at the Alamo amid allegations of financial mismanagement and poor decision-making.
