A Word from Adam PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Residents of Trinidad:
As we approach the winter months, and the end of the swimming season, I would like to remind everyone that has a swimming pool of any kind that they need to start thinking about how they are going to be storing it for the winter.

Example #1: If you plan on leaving the water in your pool, then you need to winterize it by putting the proper chemicals in the water and having the proper cover on the poo, a cover that will not blow off during high winds or a cover that will not tear easily.

Example #2: If you do not plan on leaving the water in the pool the please drain the water in a safe manner as to not flood your house or your neighbor's property. Then please put a pool cover over the empty pool so that rain water cannot accumulate inside the pool and allow mosquitos to breed.

Our/my main concern in bringing this to everyone's attention is so that next summer when it is time to jump in the pool and cool off, there will not be as many mosquito issues and more fun in the sun.

As always if you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call or City Hall any time.

Thank you for your help and support,

Adam Estes, $292

Public Notice for Mosquito Spraying PDF Print E-mail

Starting May 2018 thru October 2018

mesquito

The City of Trinidad will perform periodic spraying for mosquitos as deemed necessary. Mosquito spraying will not occur during rain or if the wind speed is 10 mph or greater.

Pesticide being used: BIOMIST 4+4 ULV

How safe is it?

Pesticides that are used for mosquito control have been judged by the EPA not to pose an unreasonable risk to human health. Spraying is scheduled in the evening to limit exposure to people who may wish to avoid contact with the pesticide used to control mosquito populations.

Sprayings will begin around 8:30pm thru 11:30pm.

People with conditions such as asthma and other respiratory conditions can consider staying indoors because spraying may worsen or aggravate these conditions.

Extra precautions during spraying:

1. Remain indoors with children and pets and cover any ornamental fish ponds, beehives or organic gardens. Stay indoors for at least an hour after spraying has concluded.
2. Close windows and doors, and turn off window unit air conditioners or set to recirculate indoor air only
3. Drive cautiously around truck spaying pesticide
