Got this e-mail from Highland Park’s always-in-the-office-before-everyone-else town administrator Bill Lindley this morning:
The Town will be spraying the entire town this weekend for mosquitoes. The work will be provided by the City of University Park, which has equipment and licensed employees. The Town will reimburse the City for the work.
While discussing the request with [UP city manager] Bob Livingston, he was immediately supportive to the request. We are very appreciative to the assistance provided by University Park. This is just another example of the continued great work and cooperation that goes on each day between the Town and City.
The town will also pass out mosquito repellant at the pool this weekend.
Between the time I left my apartment and got into the office, Lindley sent a follow-up email:
[Director of town services] Ronnie Brown just reported to me he was able to finalize this morning work by Dallas County to also provide a spraying of the entire town Monday night. Services by Dallas County are at no charge. The separate work by University Park and Dallas County will be for the entire town.
