Peyton signs ‘historic’ bills

Mayor John Peyton on wednesday passed an irrigation bill and one that regulates fertilizer use — into law.

Peyton said the algae bloom in the St. Johns River two years may have been the catalyst for the recent regulation. Fueled by excessive nutrient levels, many areas of the river were covered in a fluorescent green scum that threatened plant and animal life.
