Parks Department News

 
Congratulations are extended to the organizing committee of the 2003 Bantam AA Provincials. They were tremendous hosts and should be proud of the effort they put forth in hosting the provincial tournament. Their efforts are a direct reflection of the City of Yorkton and high marks go out to the organizing committee. From our parks department, they were a pleasure to work with - excellent job.

"Scentless Chamomile' is a noxious weed that, in many instances, is mistaken for the daisy plant and some residents have it as part of the landscape. It is a weed that must be controlled and removed. The City of Yorkton is becoming infected and overrun with the noxious weed and a control plan is being put into place. Crews started with a mapping program so that we can identify where the weed is located within the City of Yorkton. With the weed now in full bloom, chemical control, other than roundup, is too late in the season. Cutting will help control the spread, but will not eradicate the weed. Crews will be cutting locations over the next couple of weeks to help control the spread and next spring we will use chemical to spray the weed. If you have the weed in and around your property, you are obligated to remove it under the Noxious Weed Act. Pulling it out is a good control. If you have any other questions on the weed or it's control, please feel free to contact our office.

Crews will be out with the summer pruning program. Crews will be in the southwest part of the city working on low-level pruning. Please use caution when working around city crews.

Mosquito control is ongoing and crews are out daily monitoring the probable sites where mosquitoes may be. The larviciding program controls the larvae of the mosquito. There has been a drastic reduction on mosquitoes since May. This is due to the lack of moisture and the efforts of the pest management control crews.
