Fees increase for mosquito control

Fees increase for mosquito control

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - At city hall Tuesday night, the council approved the increase in the drainage maintenance fee after a lengthy debate.

The money will be used for several purposes, such as funding for an additional position to spray for the bugs. The new hire will also perform other duties in the neighborhood services division when the mosquito season ends. The increase won't impact senior citizen and disability discount accounts.
