KGLP Station Manager Rachel Kaub speaks with Bill Bright of the Sustainable Gallup Board, about spraying issues associated with the city's Weed & Vector Program, and how to get on the no-spray list:

If you do not wish to have your property sprayed, you may call 505-863-1254 for the Weed & Vector Program, and ask to be added to the No Spray List.

Or, you may visit http://www.gallupnm.gov, and choose to report a concern, then fill out an online form.
