Hooray for cleaner parks!

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer’s bill, passed by the City Council, will require Parks to clean playground equipment in city parks within 24 hours after any city agency sprays pesticides.

Van Bramer says he came up with the idea after several constituents complained about sludge left over after pesticide spraying at many playgrounds in his district.

“Cleaning our city’s playgrounds after the application of pesticides is a common-sense policy that will protect public health and quality of life for children and families throughout New York City,” he says.
