Please review the use of a herbicide to kill the weeds growing in the gutters and kerbs of my street. The cycle for the hot water weed killing programme is too long and hard-to-kill weeds are becoming well-established, e.g. nutgrass. It is now December 23 and by January they will be knee-high! Most residents don't bother about the footpath outside their properties so I doubt they would complain about the use of a weedkiller, or even notice its use! Please consider switching back to glyphosate herbicide or shorten the cycle to catch weeds in their infancy.
