Agricultural Services will soon begin targeted roadside spraying of woody vegetation (brush), noxious weeds, and prohibited noxious weeds throughout the County. These activities are scheduled to occur from June until 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.

About the Roadside Spraying Program
The intent of the seasonal spraying program is multi-fold:
- Control the propagation of noxious and prohibited noxious weeds within the County
- Increased safety through improved roadside and intersection sightlines
- Reduced road maintenance costs; improvement in a road’s ability to dry
- Elimination of vegetation that may obstruct snow removal during winter months
