No More Glyphosate on Public Spaces in Altamont, NY
We the undersigned request that the village board of trustees in Altamont, NY ban the use of herbicides containing glyphosate on public spaces. Glyphosate is a chemical used in many herbicides. Researchers and scientists are coming forward with information that glyphosate is toxic to human health and tied to a number of serious health-related and environmental issues. We do not want to risk the health of our children, ourselves, our pets, and our community; therefore, we ask that the village solely use alternative ways of managing the weeds and other public spaces throughout the village.

Please be respectful of everyone's preference.
