Prince Albert

t/c 953-4890 Parks.  As of 6/12/15, all sports fields were sprayed late April. Sprayed city hall in May. Been spraying 6th,15th 28th St medians on Wednesday this week. Yesterday sprayed 15th & 22nd East. Will likely only be spraying until end of June, and then certain area again in fall like athletic fields. Not spraying Kinsman.  Won't be doing again til the fall. Product: Premium freeway – killex. Says its safe w/in 24 hours. Will ask boss about putting up spray notices on city website.
