Forum on kudzu eradication Oct. 26 at ICC

Published 12:36 pm Thursday, October 14, 2010

On Tuesday, October 26 there will be a town hall styled meeting to discuss what Polk County&bsp; and other area residents can do as a community to help stop the continual spread of kudzu. There will a short PowerPoint presentation with discussion afterwards to help determine what steps residents and officials of the county and region can take to curb the spread of kudzu.

We want to help raise awareness about the kudzu issue and to determine what type of public support exists to declare war on kudzu, said John Vining, Polk County Extension Director and member of the Kudzu Task Force.

The program will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Polk Campus of Isothermal Community College in Columbus on October 26. A large turnout is needed to help gauge the opinions of area residents.
