Board and Commission Vacancies

Mosquito dunks

As mosquito season reaches its peak, health officials urge the public to take protective measures by utilizing the ‘4Ds’ to reduce the risk of West Nile virus:

  • DEET - All Day, Every Day: Whenever outside, use FDA approved insect repellents that contain DEET, picaridin or lemon-eucalyptus oil.
  • DRESS: Wear long, loose fitting, light-colored clothing when going outdoors.
  • DRAIN: All areas of standing water in or around your home where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
  • DAWN, DAY & DUSK: Limit your time outside as mosquitoes will bite at any time - day or night.


Mosquito dunks are available at Town Hall at no cost to you.
