The Fenton City Council has voted to extend the mosquito control program it has been utilizing for several years to include the 2019 season.
“We plan to bid out the service next year,” said City Manager Lynn Markland in a memo to Mayor Sue Osborn and the council.
“The current balance will cover about half of the costs through the end of 2019,” said Tamara Seago, owner of APM Mosquito Control. “It is projected that an additional $8,500 may be necessary on the final invoice to cover anticipated work over the next four months.
“This is a projection based on normal weather patterns,” Seago said. “Please note that APM will only invoice for actual work performed.”
The typical mosquito treatment period runs through the end of September, depending on outside air temperatures and mosquito activity. APM agrees to continue services as necessary through Oct. 31, 2019.
