As required by Massachusetts General Law Chapter 85, the Town of Millbury Department of Public Works hereby gives notice that it intends to apply herbicides along select locations on the town’s public ways to control vegetation that poses a public nuisance and/or poses a safety risk to pedestrian or vehicular safety on roads, sidewalks, curbs, medians/traffic islands and bicycle paths.
Rodeo, Krenite S. Oust Extra, Escort XP, Garlon 4 Ultra and/or Polaris, in appropriate combinations will be selectively applied to the foliage or trunks of target vegetation using hand-held equipment between September 24, 2018 to October 14, 2018. Cut stumps may be treated to prevent re-sprouts between September 24, 2018 to December 31, 2018. Millbury utilizes herbicides as a necessary component of their integrated vegetation management (IVM) program. This public way IVM program is a combination of cultural, physical, mechanical, and chemical management techniques that control undesirable vegetation in an ecologically sound manner.
No application shall commence more than ten days before nor conclude more than ten days after the treatment periods listed above.
