The application of pesticides by any means to trees and shrubbery on Town-owned public property, rights-of-way, and parkways shall be in conformance with the requirements of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act of 1972 as amended, and the State Pesticide Law of 1971.  The purpose of the state law is to regulate, in the public interest, the use, application, sale, disposal, and registration of insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, defoliants, desiccants, plant-growth regulators, nematicides, rodenticides, and any other pesticides designated by the State Pesticide Board. Any person, firm, or corporation engaged in the business of pesticide application or as public operator, as previously defined, must secure a state license in the appropriate specialty area to insure that he or she is qualified to meet the national and state standards or must be under the supervision of a state license holder.  Federal and state regulatory information shall be available for reference with the Town Horticulturist or designated Town agent.
