Notice of Vacancy: Napa County Mosquito Abatement District
The Town of Yountville is recruiting for one (1) Yountville volunteer to represent the Town on the Napa County Mosquito Abatement District Board of Trustees. The term of office is two years and will be from date of appointment to December 31, 2021.
Mosquito abatement districts are formed pursuant to the laws found in the California Health and Safety Code-Division 3, Chapter 1, Section 2000 et seq. These laws, also known as the Mosquito Abatement Act of 1915, allow for local municipalities or counties to form these Districts.
Napa County Mosquito Abatement District consists of six (6) members, one from each incorporated municipality and one from the County. The District consists of the entire County, which is an area of approximately 797 square miles. The Board members represent all of the citizens that reside within the area served by the District and may or may not be mosquito and vector control experts. A background in Government Finance or background in Agricultural Science is preferred.
The District is currently developing monitoring and control programs for yellow jackets, ticks, and rodents in response to demands for these services. A benefit assessment was passed in July of 2003 to support these new programs and enhance the mosquito control and mosquito-borne disease programs.
