During the summer months, the Street Division's weed management efforts consist of mowing and spraying vegetated areas. Approximately 380 acres are mowed, and approximately 300 miles of roadways, roadsides, right of ways, open space easements, and storm drainage detention areas are sprayed throughout the town limits.
There will be NO SPRAYING when wind speeds reach 5 mph or when weather does not permit.
The main purpose of the weed management program is to help keep weed growth to a minimum by not letting weeds migrate in certain areas, preventing noxious weed growth, and reducing sight obstructions for motorists.
Some areas are mowed and sprayed more frequently than others based upon their location and use, such as right-of-way easements, around sign posts and road markers, medians, behind fence lines, shoulders of the roads, and storm drainage detention areas.
