Public invited to mosquito control discussion
The Carlisle Board of Health will sponsor an informational meeting on Tuesday, January 16 at 8:00 p.m. at the Town Hall to discuss mosquito control for the Town of Carlisle. A representative from the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project (EMMCP) will be present to give an overview of the services provided and answer questions.
Last November the Special Town Meeting rejected participation in a different program, the Central Massacusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP), due to concern about disturbing wetlands and spraying to control adult mosquito populations. At the time, the board of health promised to look for an alternative mosquito program with environmentally more acceptable control measures and greater local control.
The public is invited and the board hopes that all residents who have questions or opinions on mosquito control will attend the meeting.
