How are mosquito control districts established?

The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors receives a request, usually in the form of a petition, from residents requesting the formation of or inclusion in an existing Mosquito Control District. Next, the Board holds a public hearing to receive comments from individuals, and it also considers data such as the proximity of the proposal area to existing control districts, availability of equipment and staff to serve the proposal area, and cost of serving the proposal area. A petition form has been developed to assist the Board in evaluating such requests, and you may obtain it online (PDF).
