The Drumheller Valley has been looking top edge lately, all thanks to the town staff who take care of cutting the grass and removing the unwanted weeds.
"We've been able to get in and cut it. I know that last summer it was so wet in a lot of the areas, you get in there with your mower and you sink the mower," stated Darryl Drohomerski, the town's Director of Infrastructure Services.
There's a schedule on the town's website of where the crews will be out.
"We've been lucky enough to stay on that schedule this year with all of our help and with the weather cooperating too," Drohomerski noted.
When roaming around town, most notice that the pesky yellow weeds have disappeared for the most part.
"I noticed that dandelion season seemed to be over pretty quickly, at least everywhere I've been driving. We all like to see yellow flowers, but not those," mentioned Drohomerski.
There were some high counts in areas for mosquitoes, mostly in low laying areas and ditches with water.
"It seems like it's been a pretty good year for mosquitoes or the lack there of this year. Even though we've had some good rain, the water doesn't seem to be standing around too much on the surface and wherever we note our trouble spots are we go at them and give them attention right away to make sure there aren't any mosquitoes coming out," concluded Drohomerski.
