The purpose of a Mosquito Control District is to manage and control mosquito pests and prevent diseases such as West Nile and Equine Encephalitis while providing for the protection of humans, livestock, pets, songbirds and other wildlife The County Commissioners appoint a mosquito control board that governs the district and create a mosquito control fund by levying taxes within the district to cover expenses and projects in the area.
