Roadside Brush and Weed Control Program

NOTICE:  Agricultural Service Board Roadside Brush and Weed Control Program

Camrose County will be spraying along County Roadsides for the control of brush and weeds commencing May 29, 2017.  Spraying will not be done in front of building sites, along field shelterbelts or other sensitive areas.  The brush control program will be undertaken for safety, ease of snow removal and site line improvement.

These agreements are available at the Agricultural Services Office at 4728 – 41 Street, Camrose     OR   on-line here.  This agreement must be renewed and delivered to the Agricultural Services office each year prior to May 29th, in each and every year.

Effective May 29th, 2017 the County will begin its roadside mowing program.   The County recognizes that certain individuals wish to harvest the roadside vegetation for hay; if you wish to harvest the roadside vegetation you must contact the Agricultural Services office prior to May 29th and identify those locations.  As per by-law #1020 the County reserves the right to at any time to cut, spray, or otherwise destroy forage crop or grasses, weeds and other growth in the ditches or on the side slopes of any public highway under its jurisdiction.
