Click here to view the proposed Deer Park City Charter that was also recently mailed out to voters ahead of the Nov 3, 2020 election. Last November, 15 Charter Commission members (Deer Park residents) were elected to undertake the task of drafting a city charter for review and approval of City Council AND the electorate. Current City Council approved the draft charter in July of 2020. If the ballot issue passes, Deer Park becomes a Charter City instead of a Statutory City. The Charter lays out government structure and Council procedures that are different than current. It allows the City to have what is referred to as 'home rule', allowing more flexibility at a local level. More info on the Charter Commission and minutes of meetings can be found on the government page of this website. Feel free to contact the city office @ 513-794-8860 with any questions.

Reduce standing water -> discourage mosquitoes !!
Tips on avoiding mosquito bites:
The most important thing to do in preventing mosquito bites is to prevent mosquitoes in the first place. Dump out all standing water in your yard regularly. If you have standing water you can't get rid of, you can buy Bt donuts/dunks from various places such as hardware stores and apply as directed.
Other ways to avoid bites:
1. Wear light colored clothing
2. Stay inside during between dusk and dawn
3. Burn citronella candles
