Langley passes resolution discouraging herbicide’s use

After much discussion, the resolution has finally passed.

After much discussion, the city of Langley has passed a resolution discouraging the use of glyphosate-based herbicides within city limits.

City council members previously questioned the credibility of statements made in a former draft of the resolution, which ended up being tabled at a council meeting last month.

A new version of the resolution was unanimously approved Monday.

“I am very pleased with the language changes,” Councilmember Thomas Gill said.

“I think it makes it more clear what we’re attempting to accomplish.”

As part of the resolution, the city agrees to not use the class of chemicals in its maintenance activities.
