The Charlottesville Parks and Recreation Department continues to at the use of pesticide on school property and in the parks. That follows a request from city councilors who wanted a report after more than 700 signatures were on a petition asking the city to stop using lawn and garden pesticides. Research is still underway, but several were on-hand at this week’s City Council meeting to keep the issue in the spotlight. City councilors say they’ll take action after getting the report from Parks and Rec. One of those speaking at the City Council meeting was local Sierra Club member John Cruickshank (pictured).
