Councilman Matt Watson was on the show today to talk about the budget for a tire shredder. Matt said that Baton Rouge has over $600,000 to buy a tire shredder. He states that the money originated from the Center of Disease Control and the interest in shredding tires is that tires will hold water, attract sunlight to heat the water, which will actually speed up the breeding process for mosquitoes. Councilman Watson says that there are a lot of areas in Baton Rouge where people have dumped large amounts of tires in the middle of fields. As you know, Louisiana doesn’t lack a mosquito population.
