Property exclusion from pesticide application (“no sprays”)
New legislation has been adopted for property exclusions from pesticide application. MDAR will be handling the requests from the public through an online service. This year they will be accepting exclusions that come to Town/City Clerks as they have in the past; prior to the March 1st deadline.
The NEMMC District has not received complete information regarding the process from MDAR and SRB. Essentially property owners will be able to submit exclusion requests to the MDAR/SRB directly, either by mail or online (system is not yet finalized). Property owners will be able to submit exclusions that will go into effect 14 days after exclusion has been received by MDAR/SRB. The State will forward the exclusions to the Districts, with date received by State is the starting time for the 14 day notice.
NEMMC will be forwarding you additional information as we receive updates. We will pick up any exclusions that come to the Town/City Clerks as we have in the past. (We will do this after March 1, 2017.)
This new process will remove the responsibility of the collection of exclusions from Town/City Clerks for the ensuing years.
Thank you for your past assistances in this process, we will keep you up-to-date as we are informed.
We will have a new Website going online the week of February 13th, once we receive complete information from the state we will have a link for property exclusions.
Acting Executive Director NEMMC
