A contractor hired by the Town of Shaunavon will be applying pesticides on the Town of Shaunavon parks & green spaces throughout this week (starting September 5th). Herbicides (weed killers) are pesticides designed to control undesirable plants, to keep Shaunavon beautiful. The contractor will begin applying them in the Ball Diamonds and continue to the rest of our greenspaces. The Town of Shaunavon takes the health and well-being of citizens and green spaces seriously, so all herbicides and pesticides are carefully chosen and applied to be the least toxic to off-target plants and animals. Furthermore, all pesticides and herbicides are fully certified by both the federal and provincial governments. Locations where the pesticides are applied will be labelled using a sign. Please see the images below as previous examples. For the public’s safety, if you see a sign in one of the parks, we recommend refraining from using the park or green space until the sign has been removed (24 hours after application). Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue making Shaunavon a beautiful place to live!
