Mosquito Abatement District Looking to Place Traps

The Wheaton Mosquito Abatement District is looking to place two light traps to measure mosquito activity in our community. WMAD is looking for yards in the NE & SE portions of our district:

  • East of Main Street & South of Geneva Road
  • North of Butterfield & East of Blanchard

Interested residents should contact Clark Wood at CWood@clarke.com. Thanks for your help in measuring mosquito activity this summer!

Vote for Your Favorite Golf Ball!

Have you seen the giant golf balls around the city? Golf ball sculptures painted by local artists are now on display outside of local businesses and organizations. They are in honor of the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open, which will be played at Chicago Golf Club in Wheaton this July. You can see this map of all of the golf ball locations, and then vote for your favorite at www.wheaton.il.us/golfballvoting. Also, see this new edition of “Chat with the Mayor” to learn about the activities and special events this summer related to the tournament.
