P R O C L A M A T I O N

WHEREAS, West Nile virus is a mosquito-borne disease that can result in debilitating cases of meningitis and encephalitis and death to humans, horses, avian species, and other wildlife; and

WHEREAS, The State Department of Health Services and the Centers for Disease Control predict West Nile virus again poses a grave public health threat in California in 2006; and

WHEREAS, adequately funded mosquito and vector control, disease surveillance, and public awareness programs are the best way to prevent outbreaks of West Nile virus and other diseases borne by mosquitoes and other vectors; and

WHEREAS, mosquitoes and other vectors, including, but not limited to ticks, Africanized honey bees, rats, fleas, and flies, continue to be a source of human suffering, illness, death, and a public nuisance in California and around the world; and

WHEREAS, excess numbers of mosquitoes and other vectors spread diseases to humans, livestock, and wildlife, reducing the enjoyment of public and private outdoor living spaces, property values, livestock productivity, and hindering outdoor work; and

WHEREAS, educational programs have been developed to include schools, civic groups, private industries, and government agencies, in order to meet the public's need for information about West Nile virus, other diseases, and mosquito and vector biology and control; and

WHEREAS, public awareness can result in reduced production of mosquitoes and other vectors on private, commercial, and public lands by responsible parties; and

WHEREAS, ‘‘Mosquito and Vector Control and West Nile Virus Awareness Week’’ will increase the public’s awareness of the threat of West Nile virus and other diseases and the activities of the various mosquito and vector research and control agencies working to minimize the health threat within California, and will highlight the educational programs currently available.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, we, the City Council of the City of Brentwood de hereby proclaim the week of April 24th through April 30th, 2006 as West Nile Virus and Mosquito and Vector Control Awareness Week.

Dated this 25th day of April 2006
