Mercer Me!

This March 9th, residents of Mercer Island (Washington state) will vote to approve or reject an "ivy initiative" - a $12.5 million, 10-year plan to clean the island of invasive plants. According to this article from the Seattle Times, the money will come from a huge increase in residents' property taxes. Concerned citizens collected over 3000 signatures to get the question on the ballot. You can read more about the Mercer Island invasives in previous ISW posts.

Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting a link to the story.
