CIty/County MOU - Aerial Spraying
Submitted By: Steve Waterman, Commissioners Court Admin
Department: Commissioners Court Admin  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approving a Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Corpus Christi and Nueces County related to working collaboratively in determining whether aerial spraying should be used to combat the spread of the West Nile virus.
BACKGROUND
DISCUSSION
With the onset of warm, humid weather, mosquitoes are starting to populate our area.  The first case of the West Nile virus has been reported in Texas already this year.  The City's Vector Control and the County's Vector Control departments  trap and test mosquitoes to determine if there are any mosquitoes carrying the virus.  In areas where positive test results are found, Vector Control does extensive spraying to combat the spread of the virus.

Last year some cities/counties employed aerial spraying due to the large number of West Nile cases in their areas.   The purpose of this MOU is to set forth the City's and the County's intent to work together in unison in determining the need for using aerial spraying to combat the spread of the West Nile virus.
