During the summer months, the Street Division's
weed management consists of mowing & spraying of vegetated areas.
Approximately 380 acres are mowed & 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 down to a minimum by not letting weeds migrate in those certain areas, preventing noxious weed growth, and reducing obstructions to sight for motorists.
Some areas are mowed & sprayed more frequently than others based upon their location and use such as cracks in the streets, around sign posts & road markers, medians, behind fence lines, shoulders of the roads and storm drainage detention areas.
