DISCUSSION:
The County will receive $152,548 under agreement #19-0737-027-SF as reimbursement for personnel hours expended on Citrus Pest and Disease Prevention Program activities during FY 2019-20.

San Mateo County pest detection program staff place and monitor 580 ACP winter traps from November 1, 2019 through April 30, 2020, and 300 ACP delimitation traps from October 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020. The insect traps are placed throughout the County on residential and rural properties and are serviced following the ACP Trapping Guidelines (ACPTG) set by CDFA. ...
