Regina Pesticide Bylaw Vote

view details »

Regina City Hall, 4:00PM

The recommendation of the environmental committee regarding pesticides will be voted on at the Public works committee meeting. Please get a apresentatiaon ready. Al suggests using the work herbicide instead of pesticide as the city may be more amenable to banning herbicides. I suggest emphasizing that all bylaws have provisions for emergency spraying. See you there.
