Please note that the County's Agricultural Services department will be carrying out targeted roadside spraying of woody vegetation (brush), noxious weeds, and prohibited noxious weeds throughout the County. These activities will occur June through September.
Requests for additional herbicide application inside property owners’ fence lines will be considered upon signed agreement. Those who wish to NOT have roadside right of ways adjacent to their property sprayed may choose to opt out of this program. Opting out requires registering with the County annually. Opt-out application forms are available at the County office, or downloadable Here.
The intent of the seasonal spraying program is multi-fold:
- Controlled propagation of noxious and prohibited noxious weeds within the county
- Increased safety through improved roadside and intersection sightlines
- Reduced road maintenance costs and improvement in a road’s ability to dry
- Elimination of vegetation that may obstruct snow removal during winter months
