Currituck County now planning for mosquito spraying

Unlike Dare County, Currituck does not have its own mosquito trucks. (DareNC.com)

Currituck County is working with Vector Disease Control to schedule mosquito spraying, and spraying dates will be announced as soon as the schedule is confirmed.

The announcement comes one day after WAVY-TV reported a Currituck County resident contracted West Nile Virus, which is carried by certain types of mosquitoes.

Spokespersons with the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services declined last week to confirm a case had been diagnosed in Currituck, and did not reply to an email from the Outer Banks Voice following the television station’s report.

Residents who do not wish to have the spray trucks operate at their property, such as beekeepers, may call Vector at 1-800-413-4445 to provide their address on a “Do Not Spray” list.

According to a news release from the county issued Friday, each truck’s route will be tracked via GPS to ensure complete coverage of the county, and will travel on public roads maintained by the N.C. Department of Transportation.

However, the trucks will not enter private roads and they are not equipped to travel into the four-wheel drive section of Corolla.

The spraying will be done after dusk on nights when there is no rain and low winds. Citizens are advised to not allow senior citizens, children, or pets near the spray trucks to avoid breathing in chemicals used in the spray.

In addition, mosquito briquettes are available for citizens at the Currituck Health Department. These briquettes may be placed in standing water, where a chemical will be released that kills mosquito larvae.

The Currituck Health Department is located at 2795 Caratoke Hwy, Currituck, NC 27929.

Local REALTOR® elected to NAR board position

 

Stephanie Walker, 2019-2023 NAR Board of Directors, and 2019 Leadership Law and Policy Committee Liaison.

Congratulations to Stephanie Walker, REALTOR®, ABR,CRS,GRI,SRES of Stephanie Walker & Associates, on her election to the 2019 Board of Directors for the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).

Walker has been a member of the Outer Banks Association of REALTORS® (OBAR) since 1987.  Having served as President of OBAR in 2002, she has represented REALTORS® on a local, state and national level.  Among her many accolades, she was also elected as the 2011 President of the North Carolina REALTORS® (NCR), as well as serving on many local, state and national committees.

Said Stephanie on her win, “I will make certain the voices of the North Carolina REALTORS® are heard at the national level, especially because we are from a community that is so unique not only in North Carolina, but also in the nation.  I am dedicated to being available for you to pick up the phone or send an email to have a current issue addressed expeditiously.  And I couldn’t have done it without the support and hard work of OBAR!”

Directors for NAR are determined through state association elections and must serve a 4-year term.  Voting for the NC REALTOR® Elections began on Monday, August 13th and ended last night at 11:59pm.  This year’s election was contested with 5 candidates from across North Carolina running for only 4 positions with the National Association’s Board of Directors.  Walker was the only candidate from the region that includes the Outer Banks.

This has been a big week for Stephanie as she was also appointed to the 2019 REALTOR® Leadership Law and Policy Committee Liaison position with the REALTOR® Party of the NAR.  As the only advocacy group in America that fights exclusively for homeownership, real estate investment, strong communities and the free enterprise system, the REALTOR® Party focuses on the issues that matter to existing and future homeowners and the real estate industry. Committee Liaisons, appointed by the President of NAR, serve as a conduit for communication between the Leadership Team and their assigned committees, help committees operate effectively, and help identify future committee leaders.  Congratulations on both accomplishments Stephanie Walker!
