  1. Thanks for the heads up on spraying that was cancelled last night.
    Today’s instructions were clear and concise but I didn’t get them until the plane went over the old Mayor’s house. last nights TV said West Monroe Swamp but that area must have expanded today. Can you but my email address or Phone # 3153455045 on the county notification system?
