Council wrong to give in to pro-weed group

It is very unfortunate that the Durango City Council caved to the save-the-weeds-and-mosquitoes group. Thoughtful councils and boards should not legitimize groups that engage in fear mongering and spreading demonstrably false information.

I love our urban parks and recreation facilities the city has chosen to manage as grass monocrops. I hate mosquitoes. There are millions of acres of organically managed land in and around Durango for those inclined to go into browsing and swatting.

I would have enjoyed applying a safe measure of electoral pesticide to the misguided and harmful ideas of this group.
