THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (November 18, 2021) – The Woodlands Township Board of Directors held a Regular Board Meeting on November 17, 2021, at 6 p.m., at the office of The Woodlands Township, 2801 Technology Forest Blvd, The Woodlands, Texas, to seat re-elected directors, elect officers for the year and to discuss other items of interest to the community.
Following recognition of public officials and public comment:
On the regular agenda, the Board:
The three biggest concerns are pet waste, yard debris and lawn chemicals. “Pet waste can create high bacteria levels in our waterways,” said John Geiger, Environmental Services Manager. “Please pick up your pet’s waste, no matter where it’s deposited, AND throw it in the trash. These steps will help resolve this issue.” Regarding yard debris, Geiger encourages residents to keep debris out of ditches and streets. It clogs storm drains which increases flooding and worsens mosquito breeding. Instead, mow your leaves and let them lie on your lawn as a great nutrient source or use them as mulch in your plant beds. And lastly, lawn chemicals. Rain and sprinklers can wash fertilizer, herbicides and pesticides off your lawn into storm drains and, ultimately, into waterways. This harms fish and other organisms and endangers human health. Please don’t overuse chemicals, never apply when rain is forecast, and consider organic alternatives to fertilizer like compost. Click here for the presentation.
