The City Attorney explained that the Fire District could contract with the <br />�. County for weed abatement services within the District. An ordinance would <br />have to be adopted setting forth the procedure (declaring the weeds a <br />nuisance, sending notices to the property owners, abating the nuisance and <br />holding hearings) and the Town would have to amend its Municipal Code. <br />John Toth, Santa Clara County Weed Abatement Inspector, gave an overview <br />of the County's weed abatement schedule. He noted that discing was done <br />twice a year and herbicides were not used around homes if that was what the <br />jurisdiction requested. Also they were looking into brush removal and a <br />report would be made at a later date on that issue. <br />Council agreed that an agreement should be entered into with the County for <br />weed abatement services with the County as the lead agency. As a matter of <br />policy no herbicides would be used around homes, no discing within ten feet <br />of pathways and spraying only along roadsides. It was further agreed that the <br />City Attorney and Councilmembers and Members of the Los Altos County <br />Fire Protection Commission Hubbard and Siegel would work with the <br />County representatives on the appropriate wording of the agreement. <br />MOTION SECONDED AND CARRIED: Moved by Tryon, seconded by <br />Hubbard and passed unanimously to agree that the Los Altos County Fire <br />` Protection Distict should enter into an agreement with Santa Clara County for <br />`r weed abatement services with the County as the lead agency and to direct the <br />City Attorney to bring back an ordinance modification reflecting this motion. <br />3.
