Council to talk pesticides and signs at Tuesday meeting
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Changes to the city’s long-debated sign ordinance, as well as a proposal to allow aquatic pesticide use in the Lake Tahoe Basin will be discussed by the South Lake Tahoe City Council at their regular meeting Tuesday.
Allowing white or blue Christmas lights for up to 90 days during the winter season, allowing banners and sandwich boards under certain conditions, not requiring a permit for the painting of signs and establishing an opportunity for exceptions to the sign ordinance through a “locally unique” designation are among the possible changes to the sign ordinance proposed by the council.
The Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board has also proposed changing its rules to allow for the use of aquatic pesticides under certain circumstances. T
he change would allow the use of pesticides to control invasive weeds in the Tahoe Keys and other areas around Lake Tahoe. The council will hear a presentation on the proposal from water board staff.
The meeting starts at 9 a.m. at Lake Tahoe Airport.
