Weed control is pretty much out of control in Belleville!!!
At budget meetings last week, city staff told Belleville city council that effective weed control was pretty well impossible without the use of chemicals.
Chemical weed control is illegal in Ontario.
Staff said every kind of legal weed control product on the market had been tried, and they were all ineffective.
Staff is worried that the turf in city parks and sportsfields is going to be seriously damaged over time.
