Park Maintenance Program and Integrated Pest Management Policy
The primary goal of the Park Maintenance Division is to provide safe and clean facilities, while protecting the natural and cultural resources of each facility. Goals and objectives are accomplished through the maintenance of parks and facilities by reliable, well-trained staff.
The purpose of the Integrated Pest Management Policy is to establish the best management practices for controlling pests that are harmful to the health, function, or aesthetic value of park landscapes in an efficient, effective, and environmentally-responsible manner, while paying careful attention to public safety. The Integrated Pest Management Policy was adopted by the City Council on October 28, 2013.
