This very statement:
weeds growing into the street,
means that the use of roundup ( a weed in the street aside) will be dumped with regularity with every rain into your precious Boca Ciega Bay killing off the life below the surface where you can't see it. Would you rather have a little grass in the streets and a live bay or no grass in either your streets or your bay. Think what you wish for, this it the planet earth you are messing with.....
