Tell the City What You Think About Comcast
The City of Longmont soon will be negotiating a franchise agreement with Comcast, the city’s cable TV provider. You’re invited to fill out an online survey to let the City know what you think of your cable service. You can find the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/comcast_renewal.
Mosquito Spraying Continues in Specific Areas
The City of Longmont and its contractor Colorado Mosquito Control (CMC) continue to implement an "integrated pest management program" to combat mosquitoes that might carry the West Nile Virus. This program focuses on first attacking mosquitoes in their larval stage before they become airborne. This is the best method since it eliminates mosquitoes before they hatch. However, some localized spraying is still necessary. The City of Longmont Spray Schedule appears every Tuesday in the Longmont Times-Call and on the City's website.
