The order banning pesticides in the municipality of Sceaux issued by the mayor is challenged by the prefect of Hauts-de-Seine on the grounds that this measure is not the prerogative of a mayor, but of the Minister of Agriculture. The hearings take place on 10/29/2019. On Nov. 8, 2019, the judge for interim measures decided not to suspend the contested order. The Prefect of Hauts-de-Seine has decided to appeal this decision.
