"Big Truck Day" event May 23

ELK GROVE, CA – It’s not every day that a child can say they have honked the horn of a bus or heard the wail of a fire engine from the front seat. However, they can do both at the City of Elk Grove’s first “Big Truck Day.”

The free event will be held on Wednesday, May 23 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the back parking lot of City Hall, located at 8401 Laguna Palms Way.

More than a dozen trucks, large vehicles, buses and construction equipment will be on site, with representatives stationed at each vehicle to educate visitors about the vehicle and the profession.

“Big Truck Day” will be held in celebration of National Public Works Week. The larger goal of the event is to help educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives.

First Sign of 2012 West Nile Virus Activity Appears in Elk Grove

First Sign of 2012 West Nile Virus Activity Appears in Elk Grove

Elk Grove, Calif.— The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District received confirmation today that a house finch has tested positive for West Nile virus in Sacramento County. This is the first bird to test positive in the entire state and the first sign of West Nile virus activity in the area for the 2012 season.  “Finding the first positive bird is significant because it means that the virus is present in our area” said David Brown, District Manager.  “With the very mild winter and the warm temperatures we’ve had so far, it’s not unusual to find a positive bird so early” added Brown. Dead birds provide an early indication of where positive mosquito samples may also be found and where human cases may develop later in the season.
