Deschutes County Commissioners Make Some Change to the Proposed Weed Ordinance


County Forester Ed Keith went before the commision Wednesday to tweak the ordinance being considered.

 

They are going to increase the time people have to comply.

 

"We also talked about the amount of time people have to come into compliance.  We were recommending ten days.  But the state statute we were looking at actually allowed 20 days, so our recommendation is to match it to what the state statute was."

 

The ordinance will also acknoweldge the herbicides aren't the only way to control weeds -- people can pull weeds or use biological enemies of weeds.

 

The commisioners are expected to approve the new ordinance in the coming weeks, but it would not be enforced until later this year.
