Weed spraying to begin week of July 17th

Starting the week of July 17th, the City crews will begin the process of spraying the City streets for weeds in the infrastructure.  This includes the area between the curbs and does not include boulevards or sidewalks.  A quadrant system will be used for the section of the City the crews will be working in.  The following is a breakdown of the quadrants:

            Quadrant 1 = West of Main Street & North of West Decker Street

            Quadrant 2 = West of Main Street & South of West Decker Street

            Quadrant 3 = East of Main Street & North of East Decker Street

            Quadrant 4 = East of Main Street & South of East Decker Street

                                (A map of the Quadrants is attached)

Crews will begin in Quadrant 1 and then proceed to Quadrant 2 and so on.  Weather permitting, Quadrants 1 & 2 could be completed in one week.  Quadrants 3 & 4 could take a week each to complete and if the schedule changes, notice will be placed on the City website.  Prior to spraying, flags will be placed at the ends of each block notating the areas to be sprayed and removed the following day. Crews will be using backpack sprayers with a low-pressure system and hand spraying the street cracks only.  Residents are encouraged to pull weeds in their areas on a continuous basis if they do not want their areas to be sprayed.

Questions regarding the spraying process can be addressed to City Hall.
