Legislator Amy Tresidder Questions County's Inaction on EEE

Oswego County officials have decided to hold off aerial spraying for mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus.

The Town of Hastings board,  however, is the process of conducting its own aerial spraying. (And more recently the Town of West Monroe)

Legislator Amy Tresidder has asked at the two most recent meetings of the legislature if spraying would take place. The answer was no each time.

To date, mosquito samples taken from the New Haven and Central Square areas have tested positive for West Nile virus, however, as of press time, there has been no trace of EEE.
