Board members from the San Joaquin County Mosquito and Vector District will discuss a grand jury report critical of some of the district’s operations at today’s board meeting.

The San Joaquin County grand jury report, while saying that the district does a good job of killing mosquitos and protecting residents from the potentially deadly West Nile virus, was critical of operations in other areas.

For example, the grand jury questioned whether the mosquito board should give itself health insurance coverage that costs taxpayers $66,439 per year. The report also states that the 11 board members aren’t familiar with the district budget.

The grand jury recommends that the mosquito abatement board serve no more than two four-year terms. One board member is appointed by the city council of each of the seven cities, while the four remaining board members are appointed by the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.

In other action today, the mosquito abatement board will consider approving the district budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year and assessments for the fiscal year.

Today’s meeting, open to the public, will begin at 1 p.m. at the district office, 7759 S. Airport Way, west of Stockton Metropolitan Airport.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
