An Aerial Mosquito Control application is scheduled for the City of Barnesville on Thursday, June 25, between 7-11 PM, weather permitting.

These applications have been approved by the FAA and the appropriate state departments. Specially-trained and licensed pilots are assisting in the control of mosquitoes in this area. The mosquito control product is one specifically designed for use in residential areas. It is safe to use and will not harm people, pets, or gardens. However, as an added measure of safety, you may remain indoors while the application is taking place.

Barnesville Cable TV subscribers should note that maintenance work is being done on channels 4, 11 and 41 over the next few days. As a result there will be times that you will experience a loss of signal. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The City of Barnesville Public Works team will be ground spraying for mosquitoes TONIGHT; Tuesday, June 23th between 7-11 p.m. Although the spray is not harmful to people or pets, you may want to go inside when the vehicle comes down your street. Spraying is always weather dependent on rain and wind speeds.

DO YOU SWIM AT BLUE EAGLE LAKE?  The area treated for swimmers itch last week was in an area from the swimming beach to a line 150 feet to the east and 250 feet north and south. Use caution if you are swimming outside of the treated area.

Have you ever experienced that dreaded loss of Wi-Fi connection while browsing the internet, playing your favorite game, or catching up on Facebook? We all have experienced trouble with our Wi-Fi connected devices at one time or another. Did you know that moving your router, even slightly, could improve your signal? When you pick a spot for your Wi-Fi router, the signal bounces around the rooms of your home. Eventually, though, it will settle in a calm, repeating pattern- much like the surface of a still lake.
