Recently the Volusia County Council adopted a summertime fertilizer ban and initiated other restrictions to protect the county's watershed. During the 1 February 2017 council meeting staff was directed to amend to City of DeBary ordinance to meet the same level of consistency as the county fertilizer ordinance.

Second Reading of City of DeBary Ordinance 04-17 strengthens the fertilizer ordinance and fully addresses the more stringent requirements that Volusia County adopted. The changes to this ordinance versus the prior city ordinance are:

        - fertilizer containing nitrogen or phosphorous is prohibited from June 1 through Sep 30 of each year
        - fertilizer may not be applied within 15 feet of water bodies

Recommended Motion
