Council voted unanimously to spend an additional $1.9 million to fight Dutch elm disease.
The additional spending is part of a new strategy to combat the disease. Winnipeg also plans to ask the province to reinstate buffer zones in the RMs of Richot and Springfield and split the cost of tree removal, Elm bark beetle control and tree-planting. This year, the province contributed $1 million to fighting the disease and the city's spent $2.7 million.
The city has asked the province to match the $1.9-million contribution.
