SALARY: $13-15 / hour, DOE

The Lake County Vector Control District (LCVCD) is an independent special district that serves all of Lake County.

The District responds as needed to other vectors and vector-borne diseases that occur within the county. In order to address the variety of unusual vectors and vector situations that occur within its boundaries, the LCVCD maintains a strong research program and regularly presents its findings at state and national conferences and in journals.
