    MOSQUITOES TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE VIRUS

    The City of Sugar Land has confirmed the presence of West Nile virus at mosquito traps located in the Sugar Land Business Park and the Sugar Creek subdivision.

    The mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile on Sept. 9.

    The City increased mosquito spraying to twice per week this summer and has been working closely with the Texas Department of State Health Services to trap and test mosquitos for the presence of the West Nile virus. The traps supplement the City’s larvicide and mosquito spraying operations.

    Humans can contract West Nile virus from a mosquito bite. Infected mosquitoes get the virus from feeding on infected birds. The virus can cause serious illness or death. There have been three confirmed cases of people with West Nile virus in Fort Bend County since July 30.

    Dr. Joe Anzaldua, the City’s medical director and health authority, urges residents to take precautions to reduce West Nile exposure.

    “Residents should use insect repellent whenever they are outdoors and avoid going outside at dusk and dawn,” said Anzaldua. “People over 50 years old and those with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill if infected with the virus. If people have symptoms that cause them concern, they should contact their healthcare provider immediately.”

    There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent West Nile virus infection. Symptoms may include a stiff neck, vision problems, body tremors, mental confusion, memory loss and seizures. The milder form of the illness is West Nile Fever. Symptoms may include fever, headache, muscle and bone aches, nausea and drowsiness. People with the milder form of the illness typically recover on their own, although symptoms may last for several weeks. Up to 80 percent of people infected with West Nile virus will have no symptoms and will recover on their own. Anyone with questions or concerns should contact their doctor.

    The Texas Department of State Health Services recommends practicing the "Four Ds":

  • Use insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
  • Dress in long sleeves and long pants when you are outside.
  • Stay indoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Drain standing water where mosquitoes breed. Common breeding sites include old tires, flowerpots and clogged rain gutters.



    NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

    National Night Out is on October 7, 2014.

    Sugar Land neighborhoods join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the annual National Night Out (NNO) crime and drug prevention event. Neighborhoods, blocks or streets in Sugar Land are able to register their parties each year, and police officers, firefighters, the mayor, City Council members, and other city officials visit as many parties as possible.

    This year Barrington Place HOA will host a Family Movie Night under the Stars on October 7, 2014, during our 2014 National Night Out. This is a perfect way to bond with family members, meet your neighbors, enjoy a slice of pizza, popcorn, have a scoop of ice cream and enjoy a great movie all at the same time!

    All Barrington Place residents are invited to bring a lawn chair or a blanket and join us at the clubhouse Tuesday, October 7, 2014 starting at 7:00 p.m. to enjoy an outdoor movie and a night of amazing fun! Make sure to mark your calendar. See you there!

    For more about National Night Out, contact Sugar Land Crime Prevention Officers Harris Johnston at 281-275-2580 or Lauren Stockholm at 281-275-2956.

    National Night Out involves more than 89,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, close to 31 million people participate in “America’s night out against crime.” Remember to turn those front porch lights on to show your awareness of and your participation in the fight against crime.



    YARD OF THE MONTH

    There were no yard of the month selections made for the month of August. Selections will be made in the month of September and the results will be posted in the next newsletter.

    With the continued rain we have been receiving, please keep in mind that it is important lawns are mowed more frequently to offset the increased rate of growth.

    Everything seems to have experienced a more rapid growth spurt. This means more frequent weeding and trimming, of course.

    Remember that special attention is given to these areas during monthly inspections: mowing, weeding, edging, trimming of hedges and trees and cleanup of sidewalks, driveways and streets. All these areas should be well maintained as well as the exterior of your home, including fences.



    REMEMBER: FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER, THE POOL WILL BE OPEN ON WEEKENDS ONLY. SATURDAY: 11 AM-9 PM SUNDAY: 12 PM-8 PM



    UPDATE FROM UNION PACIFIC

    Union Pacific Railroad set-up message boards to alert residents the intersection at Main Street and Highway 90A would be closed September 22 – October 6. Drivers are advised to use alternate routes to cross the railroad tracks. The temporary closure is related to efforts to build a segment of new track from Urlich Street to Gessner Road in Missouri City. The new section of track will improve the movement of trains through the area and reduce waiting times for motorists.

    Additionally, Union Pacific is advising drivers of two additional closures in the coming weeks. The crossing at Eldridge Road and Highway 90A will close from October 6 to October 20. Also, the intersection of Gillingham Lane and Highway 90A will close from October 20 to November 3.

    Train Horns During Work Hours

    Most of the initial work will be done on Union Pacific’s property between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. While wayside horns will remain in place at this time, additional safety measures will require approaching trains to sound bells and horns while crews are on the work site. Sounding train horns under these circumstances is mandated by railroad operating rules and is not considered to be in violation of the quiet zone. Since work is expected to take place between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., train horns should not sound overnight. This could change if there is an unforeseen issue that requires work at night or if there is an unexpected issue with the wayside horns.
