Board Members

The “Weed Board” is made up of a five member volunteer citizen Board of Directors appointed by the County Commissioners to serve renewable four year terms and one Ex-Officio member who is the County Extension Agent or designee. This Board directly supervises the Coordinator, sets Weed Board policy and procedures, approves all bills and acts as the Hearing Board with quasi-judicial powers to hear landowner testimony in contested enforcement cases.

The five volunteer Board Members each live within one of the five weed districts set up by the County Commissioners. Our districts divide the county from east to west into five sections starting with District 1 in the north through District 5 in the south. These Board Members strive to represent the interests of their fellow landowners and land users throughout the county.

Citizens may contact the representative for their area if they have weed related issues they would like heard. The representative will then bring the issue to the entire board at their next meeting.
