The table below includes a schedule of upcoming pesticide and herbicide applications. The list is updated to provide at least 48-hour notice for applications. Public Works staff make every effort to notify the community on this webpage when a pesticide application is scheduled in a public area. Dates of applications may change or be canceled due to weather; also, occasional emergency applications may be needed.

On-site Signage Procedures

Yellow signs are installed at the site at the time of application and remain in place at least 24 hours following the pesticide application. For more information, call the phone number listed on the front of the sign.
