Albany - It rained again today, so there's a chance you'll be scratching a mosquito bite if you go outside later on. With the recent scare of West Nile in Dougherty County, City commissioners want to better educate the public about the risks of mosquito borne illnesses and what you can do to prevent them.

They're hosting a town hall meeting to focus on the threat of west Nile.  "One of the individuals, one of the individuals that died was a resident of East Albany," says Commissioner Jon Howard, "so we want to pool our constituents together to hear experts that deal with the West Nile Virus. Things to look for, things of caution and concern and ask questions."

The Town hall meeting is Monday at 6:30 PM at the East Albany Community Center on East Oglethorpe Boulevard.
