Deanna: City Hires Goats To Eat Weeds

Deanna Goodlander: Yes, the goats (grazing on city-owned property on northeast corner of roundabout @ 4th & Mararet) are on the city payroll. Its difficult to control weeds around the water wells. We don't use pesticides that could be contaminates. The goats are a new thing and the Water Department is renting them from the owner. This is an experiment and we will see how it works.

Question: What do you think of the city of Coeur d'Alene hiring goats to eat weeds, rather than use pesticides?
