Who would plant huge tall weeds on village property, to to provide a breeding ground for mosquitoes, insects, ticks and West Nile virus? The village of Buffalo Grove!

In Buffalo Grove we have an environmental health problem! The village of Buffalo Grove planted tall horrible weeds all by Buffalo Creek from the golf course all the way to Arlington Heights Road. The creek is north on Arlington Heights Road before Checker Road.

This is close to my condo and it is a hazard for the village, my family, my grandchildren and others living there. Try to walk through the weeds the village planted and get eaten by mosquitoes, ticks, insects and West Nile virus mosquitoes.

Buffalo Grove needs to take care of their property by the Buffalo Creek instead of planting huge weeds all over -- causing a health problem for our village.

Buffalo Grove, please mow all these high weeds you have planted to get rid of this breeding place for mosquitoes and insects.
