PUBLIC NOTICE: City facilities are open to the public with the exception of the Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex.

The City of Lacombe is advising residents that the annual fall weed control spraying program will take place from September 2-8, 2019, weather dependent.
The City's contractor, TurfPro, will conduct a turf herbicide spraying regimen to control nuisance weeds such as dandelions on boulevards, sports fields, cemetery, municipal parks and green spaces around the city. Applications will be timed for days with weather warmer than 15 degrees Celsius to ensure optimal herbicide efficacy.
All herbicide applications will be in strict accordance with all regulations established by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resources. All areas sprayed will be marked with signs that say “TurfPro”. Please keep pets and children off treated areas until the signs are removed.
Registered day-cares and the play equipment areas on City playgrounds will be given an additional 30 metre herbicide-free buffer zone around them. This also includes open bodies of water - per city and Alberta Environment policy. Sports fields will be done early morning to avoid conflict with the general public.
The City’s Community Services Division is committed to environmentally responsible weed control practices. For more information regarding the City's annual spraying program, please call (403)782-6666.
