The Sebastian City Council is holding its 2nd Integrated Pest Management Systems Public Workshop on Thursday, January 23, 2020, at 1:30 pm at City Hall, located at 1225 Main Street, in Sebastian.

Why is it so important for everyone to attend this workshop?

While the changes that are being considered to the current pest management plan can have many positive effects, it could also affect the cost of your taxes. Don’t wait until you receive a possible increase on your tax bill to voice your opinion, as it will be too late.

The City of Sebastian would like to hear from all Sebastian residents to:

  • Help them identify options to manage the vegetation along the waterway systems Citywide
  • Help them identify options to manage undesired insects and vegetation throughout the parks and recreational facilities Citywide
  • Discuss the pros and cons of available methods–mechanical, manual, biological and/or herbicides/pesticides to be considered
  • Help them Identify funding sources to implement the integrated pest management programs
  • Help them identify funding sources to purchase equipment, employ operators
  • Provide input to City Council for consideration in establishing the best management practices

They encourage anyone with relevant information, questions, or concerns to join the Council Members, and your neighbors, to offer ideas in a free-ranging workshop discussion.
