General Notice to Control or Eradicate Noxious Weeds
Noxious Weed Program
Notice is hereby given this 7th day of May 2007, pursuant to Minnesota
Statutes, Section 18.83, Subd. 7, (1992), that all persons in Becker
County, Minnesota, shall control or eradicate all noxious weeds on land
they own, occupy or are required to maintain. Control or eradication may
be accomplished by any lawful method but the methods may need to be
repeated in order to prevent the spread of viable noxious weed seeds and
other propagating parts to other lands. Failure to comply with the
general notice may mean that an individual notice will be issued. An
individual notice may be appealed within two working days of receipt to
the Appeal Committee in the county where the land is located.
Failure to comply with the individual notice will mean that the
inspector having jurisdiction may either hire the work done or seek a
misdemeanor charge against the person(s) who failed to comply.
If the work hired is done by the inspector, the cost can be placed as a
tax upon the land and collected as other real estate taxes are
collected. You may obtain a list of the plants that are designated as
noxious and of the members of the Appeal Committee from your County
The Local Weed Inspectors are township supervisors, city mayors or their
Becker Soil and Water Conservation District's Individual Notice Appeal
Committee may be contacted at 846-7360.
