Avon Park city council will hold a special session this evening. They’ll try and wrap up a lease agreement with Florida Airport Management to take over operations of the airfield at the City of Charm. It has been a years’ long process as the city has been working on a massive grant program with the Federal Aviation Administration to facilitate the takeover.
As an adendum, the council will look at a proposed new lein reduction program for the city.
The meeting will commence at 6pm.
Summer is over, but apparently the mosquito problem in central Florida is not. Highlands County officials have relased a flyer on mosquito saftey and prevention. It is in both English and Spanish for residents who do not habla.
Hardee officials will continue their spraying program today over Bowling Green, Wauchula and Zolfo Springs.
Aerial flights will be done during the day for the purpose of surveying the planned areas to be sprayed. Although daytime aerial spraying will NOT be conducted, no specific timeframe for spraying has been released.
