Although DeKalb County has reported its first positive test of West Nile Virus, the City has found no sign of the virus in tests of water in catch basins performed July 15.
Regardless of the negative test results, it is the City's policy to treat catch basins for West Nile Virus as soon as a positive test is identified by the County.
"The City aims to be proactive," said Interim Public Works Director John Laskowski. "A positive test result initiates our treatment phase."
The Public Works Department will begin treating catch basins early next week, weather permitting.
