The council voted Tuesday to purchase $2,475 of adulticide spray from Clarke Mosquito Control Products, a company based in Saint Charles, Illinois. The resolution initially was slated to be passed as part of the noncontroversial consent agenda before it was removed by District 5 Councilor Darrell O’Quinn.
When the resolution came before the council later in the meeting, though, O’Quinn declined to argue against it. “I’ve said it all before,” he said. “I just want to do my duty and vote against it.”
