City to purchase new mosquito sprayer, apply for traffic light grant

Spencer’s getting a new piece of equipment for its annual mosquito battle. On Monday, the Spencer City Council approved the purchase of a London Foggers Model 18-20/GPS Mosquito Sprayer for $15,940. The purchase was identified in this year’s capital improvement plan, but only for $14,500. The rest of the money will be covered through the public works equipment reserve. According to an agenda memo, because the project is over budget, a budget amendment will likely be needed.
