Leslie Smith, new TDA Director for Consumer Service Protection (and replacement for Jimmy Bush), has announced the next Structural Pest Control Advisory Committee to be held on Thursday, October 27th, in Austin, Texas. This will be the first meeting of the committee since last spring, and the first opportunity to hear first-hand from the new director about changes at the Texas Structural Pest Control Service since massive agricultural department budget cuts this year.
Anyone interested in the activities of the SPCS is welcome to attend this meeting. Since the merging of the old Structural Pest Control Board into TDA three years ago, this is the only regular public venue for agency to hear and respond to public comments about its programs and plans.
The committee will meet at 9:00 am in Room 1003A of the Stephen F. Austin Building in Austin, Texas. Anyone who wants to make a statement about anything can sign up to do so at the beginning of the meeting.
The Texas Structural Pest Control Service is the TDA division that regulates structural pest control in the state of Texas.
