Union County will begin its roadside spraying program in the month of March to control vegetation and noxious weeds that are encroaching on road shoulders and right-of-ways. In most locations, spraying will extend four to eight feet from pavement edges.
Property owners who do not want herbicides applied near their property must sign an “Owner Will Maintain” agreement with the county which must be updated annually. The county will provide signs for the owners participating.
Property owners wishing to participate can sign up for the “Owner Will Maintain” program at the Union County Public Works Department located at 10513 N. McAlister Road in Island City. Any questions, please call 541-963-1016.
