LIBERTY - The city will spray for mosquitoes Monday night.
Mayor Steve Sweeney told the City Council Wednesday the mosquito population is expected to be worse this fall.
The mayor also will ask the state Department of Agriculture to help with the blackbird problem later in fall. People in town have been shooting at the birds, according to some of the councilmen. A law prohibits shooting within the city limits.
The council also had first reading on an ordinance related to authorizing the use of city property during sewer construction along U.S. 127 South. Sweeney said bids for the project will be advertised in the near future on the project that will be funded through a Personal Responsibility in a Desirable Environment grant.
A resolution to adopt environmental mitigation measurers about the sewer project also was approved. It says the city will comply with requirements pertaining to fish and wildlife, preservation of prime farmlands, wetlands, floodplains and cultural resources.
