Theresa Zumatto, United States6 years ago Comments: Too many people, especially children are being diagnosed in our community. I beleive the Town should do what it can to prevent this disease. Pesticides due attribute to cancer and therefore should be banned from our Town fields/parks/poos and from residential homes. Why would we want to kill our children!!
Adrienne Tavelinsky, United States6 years ago Comments: I do NOT want pesticides to be used. There are alternate means to kill the pests. Please do not harm our children
