Portland City Council Weekly Roundup for August 14–18, 2017

Just pesticides — again.


> Wednesday, August 16 @ 4:45pm — Sustainability & Transportation Committee

City Hall, Council Chambers (2nd floor to the left)

Key agenda items:

  • Workshop discussion of the proposed pesticides ordinances. There are two competing version that the Committee is deliberating: one drafted by the Pesticide and Fertilizer Task Force (which might reduce but would not fully limit the use of non-organic pesticides) and another, more restrictive ordinance based on South Portland’s (which does fully limit the use of non-organic pesticides). Public comment will NOT be taken.
