ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Despite spring and summer rain showers, the mosquito population in Albany seems to be in check. Dougherty County commissioner Gloria Gaines gave kudos to public works employees for all they've done to keep mosquitoes away, or at least under control.

She says it provides more comfort for folks who want to spend time outdoors, and there are health factors too. we are always concerned about the kind of disorders that mosquitoes can spread, so our country did it not just for our pleasure, but certainly for our health and well being as well."

Even though the county hasn't been receiving mosquito complaints, public works is continuing to spray five days a week, hoping to avoid encephalitis cases. One case appeared in South Georgia recently.
