    The Deep River, Ontario, council made the town's pesticide bylaw a little more user-friendly.

    Council passed changes to the bylaw last week that will allow a homeowner's "agent" - presumably a representative of a lawn care company - to get a pesticide permit on their behalf.

    And, although they didn't have to change the bylaw to do it, council also agreed that homeowners would only have to get one pesticide permit to last the entire season.

    Residents will still be required to post notices for 24 hours before pesticides are used, and for 72 hours afterwards.

    The changes will only be in effect for this year.
