City announces plans to spray for mosquitoes through fall

 

    The City of Clear Lake will begin spraying for mosquitoes, as determined to be necessary by the City, and will continue throughout the summer and fall as long as justified by mosquito population counts.

    Sprays must be conducted during favorable weather conditions and wind speed no greater than 10 mph; therefore, exact dates for sprays cannot be given.  Spraying will tentatively occur between Monday evenings and Saturday mornings, from the hours of 7 to 11 p.m., but may occur as late as 1 a.m., and from 4 to 7 a.m. in order to complete an area.
    Any persons not wanting the spraying to occur on their property must contact Joe Weigel, Public Works director, at 641-357-6135.
     The City will also be spraying on the South Shore at Grand View Point, Bell Harbor, Dodges Point, Whispering Oaks, PM Park and Camp Tanglefoot.
     Additional information about the City’s mosquito spraying program can be obtained from the City of Clear Lake’s website at www.cityofclearlake.com.
