WEED CONTROL WORKS
1. Beginning on the 20 May 2019, kerbs and footpaths in the Town will be sprayed to control weeds. The herbicide in use (Glyphosate-Roundup) is low toxic, with no soil residual activity. Only visible weeds will be sprayed.
If you don’t want the kerb and footpath outside your property sprayed and have not already sent in an exemption form, call the Town on 9347 6000. Your name and address will be recorded and a form sent to you to fill in that will ensure your exemption.
All property owners/occupiers who sign the form will need to keep the kerb and footpath adjacent to their property weed free to the same standard that will be achieved by chemical control.
2. The Town’s lanes and drainage sumps will also be sprayed for weed control, using the above same chemical.
3. During August/September various sportsgrounds, parks and road reserves will be sprayed with a Selective Herbicide to control Bindii, Clover and other weeds in turf, to ensure the safe use of these parks by the public.
All works are in accordance with Health Department regulations.
