Ballots are in the mail for residents in the Fresno Mosquito Vector and Control District, which oversees the control and extermination of the pesky insects in an area that includes much of Fresno and rural areas west and south of the city.
Single-family home owners will be asked to approve annual assessments of $4.68 or $5, depending on their location. The district covers much of Fresno, Kerman, Biola and Easton. The district covers 283 square miles and serves about 380,000 Fresno County residents.
The assessment, if approved, will raise $573,000 for the district to provide services.
Voters have until June 17 to return their ballots.
