UPDATE: The Southlake City Council has voted to participate in the Denton County aerial mosquito spraying program. Look for further updates tomorrow on My Southlake News and CityofSouthlake.com.
The Southlake City Council will hold a special meeting and public hearing at 5:00 p.m., Monday, August 27th to consider participation in the Denton County aerial mosquito spraying program. The action is being considered in response to Denton County’s West Nile Virus Health Emergency and as a way to help eradicate the mosquito population.
The option was made available to Southlake since the City straddles both Tarrant and Denton Counties.
Staff from the Denton County Health Department as well as the City of Southlake will be presenting information for the Council’s and the public’s consideration. The public is invited to speak at the public hearing.
