LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will put a hold on its aquatic herbicide program. The statewide pause will begin January 28, 2019. During the pause, FWC will take comments on from the public to decide if they will continue the treatments.

The FWC plans to hold meetings to hear how community members feel about the program. However, the commission has not released dates or times of those meetings.
