Woman reprimanded for mosquito breeding offence
One of the two people recently charged with knowingly breeding mosquitos on their properties has been reprimanded and discharged for the offence.
When she appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today, Margaret Manning pleaded guilty to having containers of stagnant water on her Perseverance Drive, Canewood Road, Jackson, St Michael property, which were breeding mosquitoes, when environmental officers carried out checks.
She told the court that she had since rectified the situation.
Meantime, a similar case against funeral director Michael St Hill will continue on February 19.
Today, principal environmental officer Ronald Chapman and environmental officer Malcolm Stoute gave evidence in that matter.
St Hill is being represented by attorney-at-law Errol Niles.
