Rural residents probably need no reminder that as the wet season begins the grass and weeds can become quickly out of control.  Council’s Mobile Work Force team will commence full mowing rounds in December, with the verge mower currently targeting areas that have been identified as difficult to access such as steep and muddy drains. Weed spraying has also commenced around road side furniture such as guide posts, signs, power poles, culverts and table drain entrances. The spraying also includes treating larger individual clumps of the noxious weed Gamba Grass. Residents are encouraged to help join the fight against this weed and to take advantage of the free herbicide, spray equipment loans and weed management advice from the Northern Territory Government’s Gamba Grass Office located at Fred’s Pass Reserve near the Community Hall on Mondays and Fridays.
