Commissioners Keeping Eye On Mosquito Problem


Richland County commissioners are discussing a couple options regarding the mosquito problems in the Lambert community. Commissioners feel that there are more mosquitos in Lambert than in other areas because of the stagnant water at Fox Lake.

Richland County Commissioner Shane Gorder said he has spoken with weed district coordinator Dick Zoanni and Montana Association of Counties’ officials about different options relating to handling mosquitos.

Gorder said counties that have a mosquito district pay a full-time coordinator during summer months.

Although that position would be seasonal, the person would need to be certified.

Gorder added Lambert resident Bryan Prevost commented that he might ask for donations from other Lambert residents to pay for spraying. Commissioners appeared to rather have the community handle the problem than county officials supervising.
