The City of Sebastian will present the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan for its Stormwater Conveyance System on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.
The presentation will occur during the City Council meeting, beginning at 6:00 p.m., inside City Hall, located at 1225 Main Street, in Sebastian.
The plan will be presented by Leisure Services Director Brian Benton, CPRP, and Environmental Planner Kimberly Haigler.
The City Council is expected to vote to adopt the plan following the presentation.
Some of the goals for the plan include:
- Protect environmental resources by reducing the amount of pollutants entering surface and groundwater and minimizing effects on native plants, animals, and habitats.
- Ensure effective, economical pest management within the City’s Stormwater Conveyance System while minimizing health risks to the public, City staff, and environment.
- Promote the transparency of the City’s pest management activities.
- Increase public awareness of IPM methods and benefits.
The in-depth plan also calls for non-chemical methods for the canal system, ditches, and ponds.
Residents who want to know more should attend the meeting tonight at 6:00 p.m. inside the chambers at City Hall.
