Putney Public Library, 55 Main Street, Putney, Vermont 05346
6:30PM to 8:00PM

This event is being hosted by State Representative Mike Mrowicki.

On Tuesday, June 19, there will be an Information and Public Forum on Ticks: Prevention Strategies, Public Input on Tickborne Duiseases and Next Steps.

The event will be hosted by State Representative Mike Mrowicki and held at the Putney Public Library at 55 Main Street in Putney from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Bradley Tompkins of the Vermont Department of Health will present the first part of the Information and Public Input Session on Ticks and Prevention strategies, from a Public Health perspective.

The next part of the program invites the public to come testify to personal experiences with tickborne diseases, leading to a discussion on next steps, including, "Is it time to go on the offensive to reduce the tick population?"

The state has undertaken efforts to control mosquitoes, and rabies through treated bait drops around the state. Should State Government be acting to reduce the tick population, as another factor to reduce risk for Vermonters?
