City of Del Mar Contractors Using Deadly Chemicals in Public Spaces

I have a few questions for you:

1. Were these workers there on a City contract?
2. Does the City know they are using chemical weed killers and spraying them in public without notice or regard to the environment?

5) What can be done to ensure that my daughter is never exposed to dangerous chemicals like in Del Mar again?

Thank you,

Joe Kennedy
