Commonly Asked Questions:

  • How does the Town handle invasive (noxious) weeds?  What do I do if I find on my land or in the Township/County?

Working in cooperation with the County and State, the Town has a designated Supervisor that monitors and inspects noxious weeds.  Early detection is the best way to control noxious weeds from taking over and damaging/destroying our agricultural crops and natural landscapes.  To report a noxious weed or possible sighting please file a report (can be anonymous) at: REPORT A NOXIOUS WEED.  


For more information and to view a noxious weed identification book, please visit the County’s website at:
