The Town of Sibley is combating the issue of mosquitoes within its corporate limits. The council recently agreed to the purchase of a mosquito spraying machine, and mayor Jimmy Williams says they have been spraying once a week since the machine’s purchase. The cost of the machine itself is $10,000, with one barrel of chemicals at $3,500. The chemicals will last approximately one year, Williams said. Sibley is located in a low-lying area and tends to hold water, the mayor said. The money to make the purchase came from their sales tax fund.
