INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Continued public pressure and persistent lobbying by environmentalists paid off last week when the County Commission reversed an earlier vote and passed a strong fertilizer ordinance to help prevent poisonous lawn chemicals from polluting the Indian River Lagoon.

“I spoke to a number of residents after the earlier meeting,” says Commission Chairman Joe Flescher, who cast the deciding vote to approve a rainy-season fertilizer ban, which scientists say is the most important part of the ordinance.

“I realized that concern about the lagoon is at an extreme high level. It has gone beyond orange to red alert.”
