Dear Owners and Residents
Firstly, we apologize for inconveniencing you with the unusual number of notices over the past two weeks regarding the treatment of Welgevonden Estate’s public green areas with herbicide. However, having had to change the treatment date on more than one occasion, and having had to give notice each time when we did so, became necessary due to the recent heavy rains. Below is the latest – and hopefully final – notice.
As required by the Fertilizers, Farm Feeds, Agricultural Remedies and Stock Remedies Act (No 36 of 1947) we hereby give notice that a contractor has been appointed to treat Welgevonden Estate’s public green areas with herbicide to combat broadleaf and other weeds.
