A mosquito infestation so severe it has lifelong residents claiming it to be the worst on record has prompted a meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m. tonight inside council chambers at City Hall, 217 E. Center Street.

The Moab Mosquito Abatement District board of trustees will take pubic input and explain the district’s immediate plans. For clarity, the district is one of Grand County’s special service districts. The meeting is being held at the city because the county meeting room is booked. 

Also, Libby Nance has reportedly resigned her position as district director, according to an email from Grand County.
