Who we serve
BCMCP serves the 20 cities and towns within Bristol County, Massachusetts.
We reduce mosquito populations through surveillance, water management, biological and chemical controls. All of these methods are performed in an environmentally sensitive manner to minimize potential effects on people, wildlife and the environment.
Commissioners live or work in the county and all decisions are made in a fiscally responsible manner. The Project advocates public outreach and education through cooperative efforts with local officials, school departments and the news media.
BCMCP Commissioners include: Chairman Robert F. Davis, Joseph Barile, Gregory D. Dorrance, Christine A. Fagan
Beginning April 6, 2021, BCMCP will start taking residential request for larvicide applications to standing water on your property.
Pursuant to the revised State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board’s (SRMCB) budget policy, please see the attached BCMCP’s estimated FY 22 budget request. The information is posted to our website www.mass.gov/eea/bristolcountymosquitocontrol or SRMCB’s www.mass.gov/state-reclamation-and-mosquito-control-board-srmcb
BCMCP is requesting an increase of 2.5% over FY 21. The 2.5% increase is for general cost increases for GIC insurance, electric, gas, pesticides, and state chargebacks. FY 20 and FY 21 did see a significant increase in County retirement contributions, an increase of almost 15% each fiscal year. Last year BCMCP made significant investment in our pesticide tracking and routing system for pesticide applications.
The State Reclamation and Mosquito Control Board’s budget is also included on the attachment. The SRMCB is requesting a 4.28% increase over FY 21. For more information or questions regarding the SRMCB’s request please contact a member directly or John Lebeaux at John.Lebeaux@mass.gov.
There are no forms to be mailed back to our office. If you have any questions or comments regarding BCMCP’s services or budget, please do not hesitate to contact the office directly or the SRMCB’s Chair John Lebeaux at John.Lebeaux@mass.gov before April 15, 2021.
