Durango City Council Unanimously Rejects Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION In 5-0 Vote

 

 

The City of Durango is located in the State of Colorado, with a population of almost 17,000.

 

Minutes before midnight on August 21st, 2012, the Durango City Council VOTED UNANIMOUSLY 5-0 TO REJECT A PETITION-DRIVEN ORDINANCE TO LIMIT THE USE OF SYNTHETIC PESTICIDES AND CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS on city parks and property.

 

City Council said the ordinance ( a.k.a. Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION ) was TOO AMBIGUOUS AND UNWORKABLE as written.

 

City Councillors and City Staff URGED THE LUNATICS TO CONSIDER A MORE COLLABORATIVE APPROACH IN DRAFTING ANOTHER ORDINANCE with various stakeholders, such as representatives for the Hillcrest Golf Course and Professional Lawn Care companies.

Unless withdrawn by the Anti-Pesticide Terrorist Organization called Organically Managed Parks Team Durango, the proposal to IMPOSE so-called ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE for city-owned property will go before the voters in November 2012.

 

After the meeting, members of the Anti-Pesticide Terrorist Organization said they would have to discuss the issue before making a decision.

 

During the meeting, Anti-Pesticide Lunatic Katrina Blair expressed MOCK-IMPATIENCE by saying that she was uninterested in waiting two to five years so a consensus can be reached while city properties continued to be sprayed with pest control products.

 

Councillor Dick White said he was sympathetic to the cause, but said he COULD NOT SUPPORT ANTI-PESTICIDE PROHIBITION as it was written.

 

City Manager Ron LeBlanc said he would not know how to take direction from the PROPOSED PROHIBITION because it was TOO AMBIGUOUS.

 

Officials wondered how they would spray for MOSQUITOES.

 

They brought up LEGAL LIABILITIES since the city would be OPEN TO LITIGATION for failing to enforce regulations.

 

LeBlanc used the example of a downtown business owner pouring a fertilizer into a city-owned planter on the sidewalk  ―  LeBlanc then questioned whether the city would be liable for the business owner’s action.

 

Mayor Doug Lyon REJECTED THE PROPOSED PROHIBITION FOR LACK OF MERIT.

 

Mayor Lyon REJECTED THE FEARS OF PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS as threats to the public health and the environment by publicly reading aloud from web-sites for the Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada that have approved pest control products for public use.

 

Lyon acknowledged that pest control products are one of those issues in which NEITHER SIDE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO CONVINCE THE OTHER SIDE

Concerns About Cost, Liability, and Doubts About Effectiveness

 

 

On August 21st, 2012, Durango City Councillors listened to a three-hour debate involving science and calls for decisive action to save the environment to persuade them to IMPOSE Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION against the use of pest control products in the Urban Landscape.

 

Anti-Pesticide Lunatic Katrina Blair ATTEMPTED TO DECEIVE CITY COUNCILLORS BY ALLEGING THAT OTHER JURISDICTIONS HAVE SUCCESSFULLY ADOPTED SIMILAR ORDINANCES, such as Boulder, Colorado.

 

Cathy Metz, the city’s Director of Parks and Recreation, noted the ABUNDANCE OF WEEDS in Boulder parks when relying on so-called ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE.

According to Metz  ―

 

I don’t think Boulder is the example we want to follow.

 

They get COMPLAINTS every year about dandelions.

A broad COALITION representing the San Juan Basin Health Department, Hillcrest Golf Course, Professional Lawn Care companies, supporters of playing fields and city staff came out AGAINST THE PROPOSED PROHIBITION.

 

The COALITION cited high costs, legal liabilities of the PROHIBITION, unintended consequences, and doubts about whether so-called ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE is effective.
