City of FDL to Test Alternatives to "Round Up" for Weed Removal in Parks

13-Jan-2020

The City of Fond du Lac will be looking at potential alternatives to using the weed control product Round Up in its parks. The City Council heard more about how the Parks Department uses Round Up to remove weeds, and the plans for trying out new products in the coming months at its meeting last week.


City Manager Joe Moore tells us that while Round Up is used regularly in city parks to remove weeds, concerns over the health effects of the chemicals in Round Up have led them to see what other options there are. “We are going to do some trials this summer with some other products - Both organic and non-organic - and we want to see what that will cost in terms of money, and time and the effectiveness as well,” Moore said.


Moore explains that the new products will be tested only in specific areas of the city, with the majority of weed removal work staying the same this summer.
