B) For Possible Action: To determine that Contract No. 1213-046 is a contract for Equipment which, by reason of the training of the personnel or of an inventory of replacement parts maintained by the local government is compatible with existing equipment and therefore not suitable for public bidding pursuant to NRS 332.115 and to approve Contract No. 1213-046 a request for the purchase of HVAC Controls and Mechanical Service from Building Control Services, Inc., for a not to exceed cost of $100,000.00 to be funded from the Contractual Service and Building Repair Fund as provided in FY 2012/2013.

Staff Summary: Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) mosquito control program currently operates April through September, encompassing many sites throughout the Eagle Valley, including Carson River from south of the prison to Deer Run Bridge. Mosquito control is an important and basic public health function. CCHHS believes to reduce the impact on the ecosystem it is prudent to target at the larval stage, rather than at the adult stage of the mosquito. CCHHS uses a narrow spectrum larvicide applied at appropriate times based on field surveillance. Central Life Sciences is the sole manufacturer of ALTOSID® mosquito larvicide and produces and markets directly to all U.S. end users via an Agency Agreement.

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) shows participation by community partners', contains data from the Community Health Assessment (CHA), has proof that stakeholder discussions were held and shows evidence that participants developed a set of priority community health issues. While this is a five year plan, the CHIP is a living document and it is expected that addendums will be continually added during the five year time frame. The purpose of this plan is to target certain health and healthy community indicators to focus on with the intent of showing an improvement in these areas; this having the overall effect of a healthier community. Additionally, the Board of Health has a responsibility to protect and preserve the health of the population within its jurisdiction.
