We the undersigned, request the Cleburne County Commissioners immediately and permanently stop the use of herbicides on county right-of-ways.

We are concerned about our health, and the contamination of our land, water, animals, and plants.

Additional information:

The citizens of Cleburne County should not be forced to have contact with herbicides. Research shows that herbicides are connected to many of the County's health problems.

There is an increasing amount of scientific research that links herbicides to Parkinson's Disease, cancers, leukemia, diabetes, asthma, learning disabilities, birth defects, eye damage, damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, tumors, blisters, skin damage, damage to the liver, kidneys and testicles, respiratory problems, deaths in dogs and other domestic animals, and other environmental problems.

Herbicides are endocrine disruptors. It may take many years for the health problems caused by herbicides to become obvious. There are no studies on the long-term health or environmental effects of the mixture of herbicides being used by the County.

Herbicides currently in use by Cleburne County Road Department:
Roundup Pro (Glyphosate)
UAP Timberland Platoon (2,4-D)
Arsenal (isopropylamine salt of imazapyr)
Oust XP (Sulfometuron Methyl)

The next regular meeting will be Tuesday, June 15 at 4:30pm: https://www.facebook.com/events/331272378358126/
