BOARD OF HEALTH SUMMARY REPORT
September, 2017

EH September 19, 2017 summary:

We have had a very busy year with rabid skunks as we have recorded eight positive so far this summer.

The 2017 West Nile Virus program has completed the third round of aerial flights. The Cheyenne airport has been a good location to make the process more efficient and less expensive. Laramie County has not had a positive human case this year.

Fly control continued through September with traps still hanging and one full round of refills. We have spent 122.25 man hours; placed 124 Trap n Toss, put out 4 cases of sticky tubes, put out 11 billion nematodes and placed 30 bags of parasitic wasps throughout Frontier Park. Our fly control will continue till October.

The property conveyance program remains strong as we continue to be very busy with the increase over last year. We do have some issues with realtors following the proper protocol for well and septic. New oil wells remain slow. Several companies have taken out drill permits.

We look forward to updating our food code with changes beginning this meeting.

The statistical form for monthly numbers is attached.
