City of Framingham Seeks To Fill Seat on Mosquito Control Commission After 18 Month Vacancy

FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham has not had a Commissioner on the East
Middlesex Mosquito Control Commission (EMMCC) since former Health Director Sam Wong retired in December of 2020.

In April, the Mayor’s Chief of Staff said they were unaware of the vacancy and would seek to fill it to SOURCE.

Last month, the Sisitsky administration submitted the nomination of Derek Kwok to serve on the East
Middlesex Mosquito Control Commission (EMMCC) to the Framingham City Council.

The 11-member City Council has the nomination on its agenda for the July 19 meeting for approval.

Kwok, a Milford resident, joined the staff of the Framingham Department of Public Health two years ago as a Public Health Inspector, after serving the City of Newton as a Senior Environmental Health Specialist for over three years.

As a Registered Environmental Health Specialist/Registered Sanitarian, he holds a number of certificates/ licenses (lead paint determinator, certified pool operator, title V system inspector, title V soil evaluator), said the Mayor’s office in their memo to the City Council.

When Wong resigned in December 2020, it meant his seat was now vacant on the Mosquito Control Commission.

The former Spicer Administration never filled the vacancy in 2021.

The East Middlesex Mosquito Control Commission is comprised of one representative from each
of 26 municipalities west and northwest of Boston.

The Commission serves as the governing body for the East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project, which was established in 1945 as a Trust Agency of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to provide mosquito control services to the participating communities.

There was mosquito spraying in Framingham last night.
