Noxious Weed Control Supplement

Noxious Weed Control Supplement – Background

  • Town boards are responsible for ditches … including noxious weeds.
  • Each town supervisor is, by law, designated a local weed inspector for their township.
    • They can designate someone to perform that duty on behalf of the township.
    • Local weed inspectors are required to attend annual training.
  • We can (1) ask voters to allow us to make land owners and tenants responsible for controlling noxious weeds in township ditches after which we would (2) pass a resolution and (3) enforce the resolution through a written policy.
