mosquitoes in the larval stages and inspections of residences and businesses to reduce mosquito breeding.

BUDGET COMMENTS

■    Mosquito control is mandated by a 1933 referendum of the residents of Broward County and is essential from a health perspective in that mosquitoes can carry several deadly diseases including encephalitis, West Nile, yellow fever, dengue fever, and heartworms.

■    This program is provided countywide. Division staff responds to thousands of complaints by residents annually by spraying infested areas and utilizing preventive measures. Staff provide residence and business inspections to reduce mosquito breeding on private property and to keep residents informed of threats to their wellbeing caused by mosquitoes.

■    The Mosquito Control Section provides aerial mosquito control spraying to further enhance the County’s effort to control potential disease-carrying mosquitoes.

Traffic Signs are fabricated in the Division’s sign shop and traffic control workers install, maintain, and replace essential traffic signs. Other crews perform field layout, application of paint, thermoplastic, raised reflectors, and pavement marking materials for roadway regulations.

BUDGET COMMENTS

■    The use of a centerline truck to install pavement markings and the use of durable materials like thermoplastic minimizes yearly maintenance of crosswalks and other pavement markings.

■    The Division provides pavement marking and signing services in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

■    Traffic signs and markings appropriations are supplemented in the capital fund.
