A mosquito control proposition will be on the Oct. 2 ballot in Allen Parish.

The 10-year, 8-mill property tax renewal will purchase, maintain and operate equipment and materials necessary in the eradication of mosquitoes.

The mosquito control tax was first approved in 2002, and brings in an estimated $592,000 a year.

If approved, the renewal will take effect in 2012 and end in 2021.
