WEED SPRAY NOTICE
This year the Lyon County Highway Department will be spot spraying roadside ditches. In an attempt to accommodate use for haying, the County will allow individual owners to come into the office to sign up for areas of roadside ditches they do not want sprayed.
Areas not to be sprayed shall be marked on a map and the owners shall then be held responsible for vegetation control. Vegetation control in the right-of-way includes brush, trees, thistle, leafy spurge, and other noxious weeds.
Should the weed inspector notify us or if problem areas are found, the County will spray those areas and bill the property owners accordingly.
Maps must be filled out at the Engineer's Office at the Fairgrounds, Marshall MN. All areas you wish not to be sprayed must be identified on maps prior to June 13, 2011. Spraying will begin on June 15, 2011.
