The week of June 1st the Town of West Point will begin its Mosquito Control Program. We will be targeting the following areas once per week, or as necessary. The current spraying schedule is as follows:
1st Street through 23rd Street – Evening spraying Tuesdays
23rd Street through points North – Evening spraying Thursdays
*ALL SPRAYING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON WEATHER.
Spraying efforts are primarily performed within the boundaries of “Public Space”, often times leaving sanctuary on private property for the development of suitable mosquito breeding habitats. The success of this community wide effort requires assistance from every property owner within the Town.
Here are just a few tips to help do your part to control the mosquito population:
Properly dispose of all unwanted containers that can catch and hold rainwater: cans, plastic containers, and ceramic pots.
Fix dripping faucets and eliminate puddles around faucets, downspouts, and air conditioning systems.
Properly dispose of any tires around your property. Used tires are the number one habitat for mosquitoes.
Clear leaves and other debris out of roof gutters; clogged gutters are prime mosquito habitat.
Change water in birdbaths, pet water bowls, and fountains frequently, at least twice a week. Turn over wheelbarrows, boats, and buckets.
Make sure that boat covers are secure, not sagging, so as to prevent water from accumulating.
If you would like more information about what you can do to help or have a question regarding the Town’s mosquito control efforts, contact the West Point Town Hall at 843-4365 or 843-3330.
Water Tower Painting
The Town of West Point will be renovating the 100,000-gallon Downtown Water Tower located at 329 Sixth Street, directly behind the West Point Public Schools Central Office.
The renovation project will include the repainting of the exterior surfaces of the water tower and could require that the water tower be empty during this time. The water tower is connected to the entire water system, so interruptions to the publics water supply are not expected.
The company contracted to perform the work will be a subcontractor of Utility Service Co, Inc. of Perry, Georgia. Renovations are expected to begin Fall of 2022, and will take 2-3 weeks to complete, weather permitting.
The product which will be used is a “Dry Fall” aluminum paint. During the exterior painting, as a general precaution, vehicles should be parked as far away as possible from the water tank or should be covered.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Public Works Office, at 804-843-4365.
Town Hall opened at our new location December 15th. We are now located at 802 Main Street.
