Upland Considering Joining the West Valley MVCD! The District is very pleased to be considered as the vector control district for Upland.  We currently provide services to the cities surrounding Upland, so it makes sense for them to be a part of our family as well.  The District is also picking up responsibility for the flood control channels in our District, which will help up provide a more comprehensive control plan for our residents.

William Sitton, Long Time Trustee and One of the District Founders, Passes Away

Mr. William “Bill” Sitton

February 15, 1931 – July 20, 2016

Mr. William Sitton was instrumental in the founding of the West Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District in 1983, actively polling and advertising for the District by going house to house and talking with residents.   He was appointed to the Board of Trustees shortly thereafter and  served on the Board continuously   (except for a brief period from 2000 to 2003) until 2014. Sitton was also instrumental in helping to establish the Vector Control Joint Powers Agency (VCJPA) whichnow serves thirty-five mosquito and vector control districts throughout the State of California as the self-insurance entity. 

 Mr.  Sitton (or “Bill” as he wished to be referred to) was a long time resident of the City of Chino.  He was a kind, friendly gentleman who was always willing to help.  He was genuinely concerned for the welfare of his city and all the residents he served.  As a founder of the District, he helped shape the attitude of caring, kindness and responsibility that echoes as hallmark values the West Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District holds true today. Mr. Sitton will be missed by The West Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District and the many residents he served.
