The Beach Advisory Committee of the City of Marco Island is sponsoring a Fertilizer Ordinance Workshop. The workshop is being held to draft an ordinance which will reduce fertilizer run-off into our waterways and preserve the unique ecology of our 10,000 islands, be enforceable by the city, and gain wide public support through education to ensure a legacy of responsibility and conservation for the next generation.
Representatives from the City of Marco Island’s Advisory Committees will be present, along with guest presenters from environmental groups, commercial lawn maintenance managers, members of local businesses and other concerned citizens.
The workshop will be held on September 16th at 2:00 PM in the Marco Island Community Room, 51 Bald Eagle Drive.
Discussion will begin with the proposed Fertilizer Ordinance of June 6, 2011.
