Presentation to Mitchell County Commissioners

Oct 8, 2013 — Hi everyone. I made to a short presentation to the Mitchell County Commission Monday evening. As you can see from my presentation, I'm suggesting the County Commissioners consider several options to provide some transparency into the herbicide usage by utilities, give Commissioners some oversight on the herbicide usage and provide citizens options for information and to opt-out of spraying on their property. We'll see if any of it flys. The commission also heard from Duke representatives and agreed to study the issue. Once I hear any additional information I'll be in touch. I'm hoping they adopt some of my suggestions and we can use it as a model for other counties and cities. Here is a link to the short presentation I made:

As always, please send me any suggestions or comments to
