Shrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Board of Health will be accepting pesticide exclusion requests submitted by residents wishing to exclude their property from public area-wide applications through Monday, March 31.

Designations for exclusions may be made by supplying the Shrewsbury Board of Health a certified letter providing the name, address and telephone number (if any), names of all abutters, and defining programs from which exclusion is requested. Designations shall be effective from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014.
