Mosquito control/prevention grant
Dupree was one of nearly 100 South Dakota local governments, to receive and share in a $500,000 grant program intended to control mosquitoes and prevent West Nile virus, announced South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard.
“When West Nile emerged in South Dakota only a few communities had a mosquito control program. Today more than 80 percent have some type of mosquito control program in place,” said the Governor. “The state is pleased to support the work of those local programs with this funding.”
