Abstract/Contents:Details a debate over municipal grass fields and parks in Lacey Township, New Jersey, concerning cost efficiency and fertilization rates. Reports that the majority of community residents support a reduction in fertilization costs, stating that "over 87 percent of [questionnaire responses] were opposed to the current fertilization plan." Mentions the amount of nitrogen planned for use in 2012 fertilization strategies, and associated costs. Emphasizes that a financial cut to the fertilization program may potentially impact turf recovery and promote weed invasion.
