Roadside spraying will begin each year the first two weeks of April. The Roadside Management crew will be spot spraying only. Spraying will not be done in front of residential property unless contacted by owner. Property owners shall destroy all noxious weeds and brush in front of residence and all other places designated by the property owners as a no spray area. “No Spray” signs and a no spray agreement can be picked up by the Secondary Roads Department or by contacting Sherlyn Hazen at (563) 920-2581. The owner shall place a sign at the beginning of the no spray area and another sign at the end of the no spray area. Signs must be visible and able to read from the road and facing the direction of on-coming traffic.
"No Spray" signs can also be ordered from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship at a cost of $9.50 per sign. (PDF File)
