Mokane council discusses mosquitos, water system

The city of Mokane has seen an influx of mosquitos following river flooding, and might have to hold out until the Mokane AmVets’ annual Frogs and Hogs Festival for some relief.

Mayor Tom Shakelford said that the city had contacted a representative with BugOut Pest Control, but that it might not be until July 15 that someone could spray the area. Councilwoman Lori Lamons voiced the display her fellow city representatives expressed.

“We need to find someone else who can come down here,” Lamons said. “My grandbabies will be carried away by then.”

Shakelford also said the city had discovered a “major water leak” on a resident’s property that had been ongoing for a year. Upon its repair, Shakelford anticipated it would make a noticeable difference in the city’s water usage drawn from the well.

Shakelford and City Clerk Dee Pfeiffer were present. Councilman Lance Clingman was absent to attend a Little League game. Lori Lamons and Devin Hoover were also present along with Jo Belmont, who entered with a beer.
