TIPS TO DETER MOSQUITOS FROM YOUR HOME
With the passing of the 2013 budget, the City of Omak will not be spraying for mosquito's this year. We would like you to start thinking about ways to rid your outdoor spaces of mosquitos so we offer some suggestions to keep those buggers away. Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquito's. Take a walk around the outside of your home and remove anything that retains standing water. We all know there are many chemical products on the market that can be obtained from our local businesses but, did you know there are many natural ways to rid mosquitos? When you are thinking about your flower beds, potted plants and your herb garden, grab some marigolds, lemon grass, citronella and rosemary. All serve a dual purpose as they are very fragrant and some are edible but all deter mosquitos. A google search will give you an abundance of ideas and the opportunity to get creative and try new things.
OMAK FARMERS MARKET TO OPEN IN JUNE

Phase 1 of the sewer project began in the summer of 2012. Buno Construction will replace over 10,000 feet of old concrete sewer mainlines in addition they will run 2,000 feet of new side sewer lines up to the clean out of private homes. This project is 70% complete. As we are approaching the end of Phase 1. City Council has approved bids for Phase 2A and the Eastside Phase. These phases are projected to start in April and continue on through September 2013.
Phase 2A takes in the central portion of downtown running south on Main Street to the end of Okoma Drive. This portion of the project will definitely affect our citizens. As soon as the City confirms the schedule it will be posted immediately on our website and publicized.
