Mosquitoes and the diseases they spread are on topic this week.
The Vt. Health Department and the Vt. Agriculture Agency are holding meetings this month about mosquito control and diseases like West Nile and Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE).
Two Vermonters died from EEE this summer.
Officials say the meetings will review actions taken this year against mosquitoes, including aerial spraying, and discuss plans for next year.
In Whiting, one of the towns sprayed with pesticides, Town Clerk Grace Simonds says she's looking forward to the meeting but wished the information was available before the community lost two of its members.
"I think it's great. I just wish that they had done more at the time that Scott was sick and with Mr. Breen, too," Simonds said.
