City Council should pass tougher rules on fertilizer

Published 6/18/2008
Algal blooms - the nasty stuff that can turn the St. Johns River green, kill fish, suffocate critical vegetation and create a giant, stinking mess - have begun their summer run.

The Mayor's Office proposed a solid, tough fertilizer ordinance in early January. It's still languishing in City Council committees.

The Mayor's Office blames the council for the delay. Council members say they have questions that haven't been answered. The Mayor's Office retorts the answers are ready, just ask.
