|Town begins spraying for mosquitoes|
The Town of Ferriday will begin spraying today for mosquitoes, Mayor Gene Allen told the Town Council Tuesday.
"I don't know if they are just passing through, or what, but they are bad," said Alderwoman Gail Pryor.
Allen said he talked with certified sprayer Betty Faulkenberry, who will operate the truck.
"We purchased the chemicals last week and put the machine on the truck, but we need to get it calibrated to start spraying," Allen said.
The mosquitoes were swarming at the Ferriday-Block football game at Melz Field Friday night. Ferriday hosts Vidalia Friday.
"We will spray the football field for Friday's game," Allen said.
The board also accepted bids on a hunting lease on Poole Road.
Quotes were sought for a one-year period.
Curtis Clark sent in a bid for $2,450 for three years.
The board accepted that bid, but Fred Middleton, who had the second-highest bid at $1,725 said Clark's bid did not meet the specs because it was not for one year but for three years.
The board voted to let attorney Myisha Davis look over the bid and if it is acceptable to approve it.
