Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton: West Nile Spraying Possible

Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton encourages residents to stay informed on a possible pesticide spraying in the Bayville area. DeRiggi-Whitton’s 18th LD office was informed by Department of Health (DOH) officials that West Nile Virus has been discovered in a county trap near the “Poseidon” property.
