The City is spraying for mosquitoes again this year.  The chemical used is not harmful to people or pets, however, if you see a spray truck approaching, you should go indoors for a few minutes while the spray dissipates.  Spraying will be once a week or every other week depending on the population of mosquitoes. 

Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes.  It is important to eliminate standing water sources by empting cans, buckets, old tires or other items that hold standing water.  The City is using briquettes in standing water around town to prevent the growth of mosquito larvae. 

Together we can help control mosquitoes from becoming too much of a nuisance. 

Ms. Sherry Pullen has approached the City Council about having a Farmer's Market and will be organizing this event.  The Council and I will support this endeavor.  Please be aware that the "Cottage Food Act" must be followed when selling items at a Farmer's Market.  As more information becomes available, I will let you now. 

Be sure to mark your calendars for the City Wide Garage Sale on May 6, 2017.  If you are going to participate in the garage sale, be sure to contact City Hall by noon on May 5, 2017 to be placed on the garage sale map.  Maps will be available at City Hall the day of the garage sale.  Keep in mind to be on the map, you must be within City Limits of Bogata.
