The Saugus Inspectional Services Department asked us to let everyone know that Saugus will be starting mosquito spraying.

It will be performed seven days a week from 9:00 PM to 2:00 AM, scheduled by precincts. High winds or rain will result in cancelled spraying and that precinct will be sprayed on the following night. The following is the schdule of spraying by precinct:

Monday: Precinct 1; Tuesday: Precincts 2 & 10; Wednesday: Precincts 3 & 8; Thursday: Precinct 4; Friday: Precinct 5; Saturday: Precinct 6; Sunday: Precincts 7 & 9.

"Scourge" insecticide will be used for spraying. Scourge has been used in Saugus for several years, and has only a mild paint like solvent odor. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on this product are available for review at the Inspectional Services Department. If you do not want your property sprayed, please contact the Board of Health at 231-4115 and install aluminum pie plates at both property lines that may be easily seen by the pesticide applicator.

Both the Special Saugus Town Meeting and the Annual Saugus Town Meeting that were underway last night completed. The decision of the Special was to refer the idea of a RESCO health study to a committee created for the purpose by the Town Manager. The committee will try to determine what can be achieved by such a study and how best to fund it should it turn out to be useful. Highlights of the Annual include the passing of a drive-through window by-law, an increase in the water rate to help compensate for the MWRA increases, and the passing of articles to construct a sidewalk on Adams Avenue and fund repairs to the Town Hall Annex.

We'll start collecting such pictures over the Summer and will eventually be posting some of the best ones online. We'll post more details later about how & when to send us the pictures, when we'll be posting them, etc.
