3:30 elapsed Discussion with Sarah ? owner Dragon Mosquito Control, returning as town control contractor, on their work and monitoring for disease bearing EEE and West Nile mosquitos. They do not manage salt marsh but do have to treat. Rye does not do road spraying (stopped 6-7 years ago). Most Rye mosquitos are from the salt marshes, are day biting and aggressive. Rye has 600 catch basins which can be an area for West Nile mosquitos.

Proposal was to excavate and pour concrete for a garage which was going to be within 3 feet of conservation land, the ZBA having granted a variance to build in the setback. Part of lot’s driveway was also on conservation land and was requested to be removed. Basement water and lawn debris from adjacent properties was observed being put on the conservation land on prior visits.
