DuPage County Confirms Two Human Cases of West Nile Virus in Lombard

In response to two (2) confirmed human cases of West Nile Virus, the Village coordinated with its service provider, Clarke Mosquito, for an adulticide spray in an isolated area of northeast Lombard where the cases were detected. The area was east of Grace Street and north of St. Charles Road. The area was treated with a product called Murus™. Merus™ is Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) listed and meets National Organic Program (NOP) standards for adult mosquito control in and around organic gardens, farms and crops. The application was performed in the pre-dawn hours when the target mosquitoes are most active. The Village does not anticipate any additional applications at this time, but continuing the practice of providing larvicidal treatments.

Clarke Mosquito’s practice is to notify any individuals that have signed up for advance notification of adulticide spraying. Individuals with health concerns may contact Clarke's hotline at 1-800-942-2555 or www.clarkeportal.com/hotline to receive notice of spraying. Additional information about the Village’s mosquito abatement program can be found at www.villageoflombard.org/mosquitoabatement

The most effective way to prevent mosquito bites is to use insect repellent, wear long sleeves and pants, and to empty all sitting water on your property.

Recreational Cannabis Update

Recreational Cannabis To Be Considered by Village Board September 19, 2019

The topic of the sale of recreational cannabis within the Village was recently reviewed at a Special Meeting of the Lombard Plan Commission. The Commission considered zoning text amendments to provide for such sales, as initially discussed in a July 31,2019 Special workshop Session of the Village Board.  The Plan Commission recommended approval of the text amendments to provide for such sales as a permitted use in certain districts, but recommended that such sales in the downtown area be prohibited and recommended that such sales uses be listed as conditional uses in the B3 and B4 Commercial Districts.
These recommendations will return to the Village Board for consideration on September 19, 2019. For more information on this topic, visit villageoflombard.org/recreationalcannabis
