The city is spraying for mosquitoes on a weekly or biweekly basis depending on weather conditions. The chemical used is a non harmful to pets or people but we ask you stay indoors when spraying is going on.  We are also using a larvicide in places that hold water longer than seven days. We are working to keep the population of mosquitoes down. 

If you have any objects around your home or place which holds water, please drain the water (buckets, tires, etc) as this is a place where mosquitoes lay eggs. 

The old nursing home is still being worked on as some liens on the property have to be removed before the city can acquire it. 

As summer is coming and school is about over, please watch for children as you drive the streets. 

If you notice water standing in places, it could possibly be a leak notify city hall so the city workers can check on it at 903-632-5315. 

As you are out and about your places, watch for snakes as there seems to be more sightings this spring than usual.
