CDFA meets Sonoma Ag Commissioner and Board of Supervisors to continue LBAM eradication
Date Tuesday July 08
Time 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location Details
Sonoma County Administration Bldg.
575 Administration Dr. Room 102A
Santa Rosa
Event Type Protest
The CDFA, the Sonoma County Ag Commissioner and possibly other agencies will give a presentation before the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors

The CDFA's attendance is in response to actions taken by one of the two Sonoma neighborhoods where twist ties for the light brown apple moth where planned, which temporarily halted the twist tie program in Sonoma county. In addition to making calls to the Board of Supervisors and the CDFA, the residents placed yard signs reading "CDFA, No twist ties here" in their front yards.

The CDFA plans to use the July 8 meeting to convince Sonoma county, and residents in these two neighborhoods in particular, that the eradication plan for the light brown apple moth and twist tie placements in Sonoma county should go forward.

Please come and lend your support to Sonoma residents
