CITY OF BRANDON NOW ACCEPTING 2021 REGISTRATIONS For MOSQUITO FOGGING BUFFER ZONE REGISTRATIONS 

 

Brandon, MB – City of Brandon Parks & Recreation Services is advising that residents may apply to have a 90-metre buffer zone applied to their property during a nuisance mosquito fogging event in 2021. By registering for a buffer zone, residents will have their property and an area of 90 metres on either side of their property in the front street, side street, and rear lane excluded from the Nuisance Mosquito Fogging Program. 

 

Residents are reminded that they must renew their buffer zone registration at the beginning of every season. A resident’s name, address, telephone number and proof of occupancy are all required for a buffer zone application to be accepted. A medical certificate is NOT required to request a nuisance mosquito buffer zone. However, should the Province of Manitoba issue the City of Brandon an order to spray for Culex tarsalis mosquitoes, all buffer zones will not apply. The Culex tarsalis mosquito is the type of mosquito which is known to carry and transmit the West Nile virus. More information about the Province of Manitoba’s West Nile virus program can be found at gov.mb.ca/health/wnv. 

 

To apply, residents can fill out the Buffer Zone Registration Form and email the signed copy to parks@brandon.ca. Physical copies can be picked up and returned to the Parks Complex, located at 2020 McGregor Avenue. Please note that this building is closed to public access, but residents can knock on the door to pick up or drop off their registration form. More information on the buffer zone registration process can be obtained by calling Parks & Recreation Services at 204-729-2148 or emailing parks@brandon.ca.
