St. John’s city staff will be taking another look at the city’s new “no-mow” policy – only weeks after it was announced at a city council meeting. The policy was announced at the June 28 meeting of council. For safety reasons, ride-on lawn mowers can no longer be used on grades of more than 10 per cent and push mowers on grades of more than 15 per cent. At Monday’s public works committee, a letter was read from the Friends of Victoria Park who want the city to take care of the long grass in the park before the annual lantern festival at the end of this month, warning that using other machinery to cut the grass would take much longer and thus cost much more. The director of Public Works says that Victoria Park will be mowed before the festival – but in the meantime the city is stuck again deciding between aesthetic, safety, and financial concerns.
