At the September 2020 City Council meeting, I worked with Councillor Jeffries on a motion that reads as follows:
That Administration report back with a strategy for a coordinated foxtail response in the upcoming growing season. This may include working with land developers, lot owners, Parks Division, Community Standards Division, and the Fire Department to ensure that the many sources of foxtail can be dealt with proactively in 2021.
We received a report back in March 2021 outlining the Administrations plan to enforce Foxtail Barley proactively for the 2021 season. Due to time constraints in March, the report was only considered by the Standing Policy Committee on Planning, Development and Community Services in April. This blog post provides an update of the measures proposed.
