Mosquito Spraying Scheduled for August 20th @ 8:30 pm


Mosquito Spraying Scheduled Starting at 8:30 pm on Monday, August 20th

Due to a mosquito trap in Bexley recently testing positive for the mosquito species which is a carrier of West Nile Virus, Franklin County Public Health will be performing a mosquito treatment in Bexley on August 20th, beginning at 8:30 pm. This treatment is scheduled for the evening, after bee and other insect populations are no longer active or vulnerable, and when the mosquitoes that are West Nile Virus carriers are most active.  Note that this treatment will not impact all mosquito species which are active in Bexley, so residents should continue to be vigilant about removing sources of standing water, etc to discourage mosquito population growth. A map of the region being sprayed can be found here.

Residents who wish to avoid any contact with the treatment are advised to keep windows closed and to avoid outdoor activity from 8:30 pm until trucks have completed spraying (spraying is estimated to be completed by 9:30 pm). Residents may opt out of spraying at their property by filling out a "no spray" request form by clicking here. For more information on the testing and treatment program offered by Franklin County Public Health, click here.

Phone Troubles at City Hall

Our phone lines are down at City Hall and we're actively working with our IT manager and service provider to find a solution. This seems to be an issue affecting calls made from mobile Verizon Wireless numbers into non-emergency city lines. We currently do not have an estimate of when the problem will be solved, but we are working on it!

Thank you for your patience.
