The week before Memorial Day is officially “Idaho Noxious and Invasive Weed Awareness Week.”  With that reminder, "we want to encourage all Idaho citizens to take an active role in the battle to control and manage noxious and invasive weeds in our state and to ask for their help not just during Idaho’s Noxious and Invasive Weed Awareness Week but throughout the entire weed season," said Roger Batt, spokesperson for the Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign. 

This wet spring will likely promote vigorous growth of weeds this summer.  Many of the noxious weeds we have locally cause allergies and place properties at risk for spreading fire as they dry out.  Now is best the time to begin managing your weeds, your neighbors will thank you for it. 

The City of Sandpoint will begin inventorying nuisance/ noxious weed locations later in May, if your property is noted to have weeds a letter will be sent requiring maintenance of the effected property.  Please review city code Title 4, Chapter 4 for details. To learn how you can help check out. http://www.idahoweedawareness.net
