Noxious Weed Control Board

Member Specifications
  • Members: 5
  • Term: 4 years
Purpose
Spokane County's Noxious Weed Control Program focuses on education, notification, technical assistance and control of noxious weeds through voluntary compliance and enforcement.

Responsibilities/time Commitment
During the months of April through August, when the weeds are actively growing, the Weed Board employs a field staff with natural resource, horticulture and agricultural backgrounds to survey public and privately owned lands for noxious weeds and to work with landowners to achieve weed control.

Approximately 25% of the inspections come from citizens who report noxious weed locations to our office, the remainder are inspections made by the field staff as they travel the county.
