- Mosquito Spraying
The City sprays one or two weeks per year, based on citizen complaints and observed mosquito populations. The current round began Sunday, July 17, 2022 and will conclude Friday morning, July 22,2022. Spraying begins west of town and progresses east throughout the week. Spraying is done in sections which are based on the political wards that the city is divided into. A map of those wards can be found by clicking below.
The order, by ward, that the spraying will follow is:
Night # 1 - Ward 1 and part of Ward 6 (North of Lincoln Ave.)
Night # 2 - Ward 2 and finish Ward 6 (South of Lincoln Ave.)
Night # 3 - Ward 5
Night # 4 - Ward 3
Night # 5 - Ward 4
Weather and/or other circumstances may delay or halt our operations but we will always pick-up where we left off the night before. Using this schedule and the ward map found above, residents with respiratory issues are urged to keep their windows closed overnight and beekeepers are urged to cover and restrict entrances to hives that they maintain.
Below are links to maps showing our progress throughout the week. (Note: The blue line on the map indicates the truck route and the red band under the blue line indicates when the sprayer was in operation.)
