Local residents Glenda and Keith Nelson have distributed flyers throughout the village, inviting residents to attend a forum that will focus on the mosquito issue and develop a communitywide action plan to help find a solution
Mosquito borne diseases include West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. While both have not yet been detected this year in Chautauqua County, public health officials have released warnings and are trying to help increase awareness about staying protected from mosquito bites.
Several local officials will attend the meeting, including Falconer Mayor Dave Krieg, the village board and County Executive Vince Horrigan.
Tonight’s meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Fenner Elementary School on East Main Street and is open to the public.
