Towns and Urban-like Areas
There are a great many parcels/lots
in the various "cities"-referring
to both incorporated and
unincorporated settlements within the county-and noxious weed concerns that vary
within each area. The Weed Board staff is not realistically able to knock on
each door of each house or business or to track down each vacant lot owner in a
timely manner to advise of all weed problems needing attention. Most often we
find that lack of control is simply due to a lack of knowledge of weed
identification and/or landowner responsibilities.
The purpose of these pages is to provide
specific ordinance information (where available) with regard to weed control in
each of the incorporated cities in the county and to list some of the weeds that
seem to be either particularly prevalent or unrecognized in the different areas.
By doing so we hope, in part, to inspire you and maybe your neighbor to step up
to the weed control challenge without waiting for one of our staff or, in the
case of incorporated cities with weed ordinances, one of the various city
personnel to knock on your door or send you a letter.
Click on the city/area in which you have
property to see some specific weeds you should be on the look out for as well as
whether there are city ordinances in addition to the state noxious weed law
regulating control. We will be adding areas as time permits, so if yours is not
yet here, please check back or call for the information. We hope you find these
pages helpful and welcome your comments at
