The Regional District of Central Kootenay is taking another look at mosquito control in Winlaw.

Slocan Valley regional director Walter Popoff says they’ll do a feasibility study.

Popoff says the study will look into how much mosquito control would cost.

A previous referendum on the same subject failed.

Popoff says the purpose of the meeting is to provide information to residents on the process, the proposed coverage area, the proposed treatment, and the cost of the proposed mosquito control program.

Information from the ‘Mosquito Control Service Area Assessment and Cost Projection’ study by Morrow Bioscience Ltd. will be presented. There will be a facilitator, and the Streamkeepers have been invited to provide information on the treatment and its impact on the environment.

All residents are invited to attend.
