County provides money to help fight weeds
SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Noxious Weed Program has $10,000 to distribute as matching funds to people who want to eradicate noxious weeds on their property.
Noxious weeds are non-native weeds that, because they have no natural predators, take over the land by edging out native plants.
The program will grant qualifying property owners up to $500 to buy products or cover grazing or mowing costs.
Applicants must submit an application with a weed management plan and detailed map. Those who have weeds on their property that are listed on Summit County’s highest priority list will have precedence over people with less-noxious weeds.
Summit County’s highest priority weeds are leafy spurge, Russian knapweed, plumeless thistle, houndstongue, spotted knapweed, diffuse knapweed, dalmation toadflax, hoary crest, perennial pepperweed and common tansy.
Noxious weed officials can help property owners create a weed management plan.
For more information, contact Lisa Taylor at (970) 668-4218.
