The Flower Mound town council will hold an emergency meeting Thursday night to discuss aerial spraying for mosquitoes.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at Town Hall and comes just a day after Denton County Judge Mary Horn declared a West Nile virus health emergency for the county.
The declaration allows for additional state and federal resources to be made available to combat the spread of the disease, including aerial spraying.
While Denton County has recommended aerial spraying, it is up to individual municipalities to determine whether they will take part.
As of Aug. 21, there have been 15 cases of West Nile virus reported in Flower Mound and 112 in Denton County.
Thursday's meeting will be broadcast live on FMTV and will be streamed online at www.flower-mound.com.
