Community Conversations open houses start June 21

Are you curious about what’s happening with the Village of Oswego’s water supply? Want to know more about where your tax dollars are going? Interested in learning more about downtown Oswego development projects or plans for Wolf’s Crossing Road?  

Each summer, the Village of Oswego hosts a series of Community Conversations, giving residents an opportunity to talk one-on-one with Village staff members and elected officials right in their neighborhoods.

Community Conversations are happening this summer at three locations in Oswego:

Community Conversations are free and open to the public.

Mosquito Alert

The Village of Oswego is asking residents to report stagnant water in order to help control mosquitoes. 

The Village of Oswego has been informed by its contracted mosquito control contractor Clarke that mosquito populations are likely to increase significantly over the next few weeks.

Record rainfall in May and warmer-than-average June temperatures will be responsible for huge successive broods of floodwater mosquitoes that will be hatching soon.   

Residents can help control mosquito populations in the most environmentally friendly way possible by reporting standing water directly to Clarke. Call the Clarke Mosquito Hotline at 800-942-2555 to report new stagnant water. New stagnant water is defined as areas that have been dry and traditionally do not hold water but are now retaining water for four or more days.

Reporting new stagnant water allows Clarke to treat the water for mosquito larvae before they hatch using natural larvicides.

In addition, Clarke has been spraying for adult mosquitoes in the evenings throughout Oswego. The Village alerts residents when spraying is expected on Facebook and Twitter. Residents can also call the Mosquito Hotline at 800-942-2555 to receive alerts when Clarke is spraying in their area.

Clarke uses a variety of environmentally responsible methods to reduce mosquito populations, including applying naturally-derived active ingredients, using earth-friendly application methods like bicycles and all-electric sprayers, and leveraging GPS technology to efficiently monitor mosquito breeding sites. For more information, visit www.clarke.com.

For mosquito updates, follow @VillageofOswego on Facebook and @OswegoIL60543 on Twitter, or call the Clarke Mosquito Hotline at 800-942-2555.
