Council committee takes up issue of pesticides in parks

 

After residents expressed concern about chemical exposure risks, a presentation on the use of pesticides in city parks has been set for Thursday, Oct. 18.

The presentation will be given to the City Council's Environmental Sustainability Committee, chaired by council member Ronit Bryant, who said she has been concerned about the practice for years.

"With advocacy from the community, we could work on a plan to put together items such as easier-to-access information about levels of toxicity used, best practices, and goals for reductions with periodic evaluation of goal achievement," Bryant wrote in an message on the Old Mountain View Neighborhood Association list serve.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the atrium conference room at City Hall.
