People in Hampton have a lot of questions about what their government is or isn't doing. For the Record is a place to gather those questions and provide answers. We want more people to understand the facts -- what has been done, what is being done, what isn't being done -- as well as the rationale behind the city's position. Whether you want a short, quick explanation in a video clip or a longer, in-depth study of an issue, look here as we roll out topics throughout the year.

More uniformed police officers patrolling the streets. Increased community outreach. Tougher prosecution. A new high-tech crime center. These are just some of the tools in use now — or planned for the near future — to combat crime in Hampton.
Defending against mosquitoes takes a concerted effort by the city’s seven-member mosquito team, as well as each one of us. For the record, the city focuses on the use of bio-larvicides, which are made of naturally occurring bacteria that keep juvenile mosquitoes from developing. Ultra-low-volume truck-mounted sprays are used when necessary.
