Zika talk at Friday's Village Council meeting

I was talking Javier Gonzalez, head of the Village Council and I brought up the dead bird issue around the Grove. He says it has nothing to do with Zika spraying as many have assumed. He, like others, have told me the birds are flying into windows and dying.

"I will be speaking to this topic on Friday at the Village Council meeting'" says Javier. 

He sent me this map in the meantime. Click on it for much larger version.



Javier says, "The County is running this service (that's why there has been some confusion with City) and their plan is to continue to apply Larvicide weekly on Sunday mornings between 2:00 am and 5:30 am. They are doing several neighborhoods that get a lot of visitors (Brickell, Miracle Mile, Wynwood) so it's just not us."

They started Truck spraying on September 21; that was done only once and after they target the larva only. The product being used is Vectobac.  Naled is not being used.

The Coconut Grove Village Council meets Friday, October 21 at City Hall (3500 Pan American Drive), at 6 pm. Along with Javier's Zika talk, other issues on the agenda include:

- House Keeping
- Approve previous months Minutes
- Opportunity for Members to add agenda items

- Police/Net Office 
- Discussion Items
- Housing Summit=
- Grove 2030 Self Governance Event
- Vacant Lot requirements 
- Historic Preservation of Homes
