City hopes request for new PD boat will float

(Continued)

Mike Swann from Municipal Mosquito said there is no rhyme or reason to the virus but it does generally appear in areas in anywhere from five to seven year cycles. Once a mosquito is tested and found to have the virus, spraying will begin on three consecutive night basis in the area where the mosquito was found.

Swann said the spray used has a 60 percent kill rate per night.

Council member Jeff Robinson asked if the city could save money by doing the treatments, if needed, themselves. Swann said all his technicians are licensed in case of a lawsuit happening because of the spraying.

Rudolph said the city will have dunks available for residents to treat areas of standing water, where mosquitos tend to congregate, like they did last summer.
