Okanogan to begin spraying for mosquitos tomorrow

— Rainy weather Monday morning thwarted city officials’ efforts to spray for mosquitoes, so they’ll give it another try Thursday night and Friday morning.

City officials are asking residents to turn off outside water today and refrain from watering for 24 hours after the spray is applied.

Animal dishes and pets should be kept inside until the spray has dried, officials said.

Meanwhile, Omak officials announced Wednesday they plan to seek a permit from the state Department of Ecology to spray for mosquitos.
