Herbicide Applications in Parks

When necessary, the Parks Department treats turf and flowerbed spaces with herbicides to control and inhibit the growth of noxious or invasive weeds when mechanical removal is not feasible.  All treatment activities are regulated per the Adopted Herbicide Policy and Practices.pdf pdf Document.  Any application of herbicide is done by a certified Pesticide Applicator and all precautions are taken to ensure that there is no danger to the public prior to, during, or after applications.

Below is a list of Parks properties that were treated with herbicides (Crossbow & Killzall) on 8/15/2017:

Employee
of the
Month

 

Jacob Olson began training as a lead guard almost three years ago.  During that time he has grown in leadership skills, making good decisions in keeping staff and patrons safe, and mentoring new staff. He is hyper vigilant as a lifeguard, spotting problem swimmers as soon as they begin to struggle.  Jacob has made more rescues than any other guard on staff, and does an exceptional job being professional.  He has an impeccable record when it comes to attending staff in-service training and shows a sincere interest in training and improving as a lifeguard. Jacob models positive behavior for the lifeguards at our facility.

Thank you, Jacob!
