Mount Royal Adopts New Pesticide Bylaw Judy Bock
March 20, 2001
Last night Council adopted a new pesticide control bylaw to replace the
less than effective bylaw adopted in 1995.
A qualified person will be hired this summer to sensitize residents and
contractors about the changes and to get the population prepared for
full implimention after Dec. 2001 when an application on grass will only
be allowed under an individual permit if a serious infestation
(threatening human health or important damage to a significant part of
the property ) and ther is no other solution.
We have a number of very commited residents who will stay involved as
"watch dogs" and act as a support group for the employee in charge.
Attached is the final draft...I can send the actual bylaw in both
languages to anyone who might be interested.
