Due to the recent abnormal increase in our local mosquito population, Mayor Tommy Eschete has instructed the Cityís mosquito control contractor to begin a supplemental spraying regimen throughout the City for the next two weeks beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, November 10, 2015.
The supplemental spraying is necessary due to the increased mosquito population caused by unseasonably mild temperatures and heavy rain. To assist with mosquito control efforts, please check around your home and empty any containers which may hold water. Additionally, please avoid going outside at dawn or dusk, but if you must, please wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, and spray repellent to exposed skin.
The mosquito situation will be reevaluated in two weeks to determine if there is a need to continue supplemental spraying.
