Mayor Kevin Faulconer has allocated $70,000 in this year’s city budget to stop a continuing fly problem in Mission Beach.

Trash in the beach area causes thousands of flies to swarm, pestering tourists and small-business owners, a condition that worsens in warmer weather. 

"This is primarily a health and safety issue," said District 2 Councilmember Lorie Zapf. "When you have flies landing on food, when you have the fly infestation that happens in the summer, we as a city have to do something to eradicate the problem."

The mayor also granted Mission Beach a second trash pickup from early July to the end of September to fight the flies. The second trash pickup will happen every Saturday on top of the normal weekly trash pickup each Tuesday.
