Weed Treatment – Options
i. That the Chief Operating Officer be recommended to approve the continued use of glyphosate based treatments as the principle method of weed control.
Reason: To ensure the most effective weed control
ii. That the Chief Operating Officer be recommended to approve a two year contract, with an option to extend for two years, with that decision being brought back to a future decision session.
