2021 General Notice to Control or Eradicate Noxious Weeds

General Notice to Control or Eradicate Noxious Weeds

Notice is hereby given this 30th day of April, 2021, pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 18.75-18.91, that all persons in Wright County, Minnesota, shall control or eradicate all noxious weeds on land they occupy or are required to maintain.  Control or eradication may be accomplished by any lawful method, but the method(s) applied 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, Minnesota Statutes, Section 18.83, Subdivision 2, 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 an 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 noxious and the members of the appeal committee from your County Agricultural Inspector or County Designated Employee.  You can also obtain this information from your Local Weed Inspectors.  Local Weed Inspectors include the township supervisors, city mayors or their appointed assistants.  More information regarding the MN Noxious Weed Law and a list of County Agricultural Inspectors and County Designated Employees can be obtained from the website of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

More information about rules and regulations as well as plant identification and facts can be obtained from the County Agricultural Inspector or the Department of Agriculture at:

We appreciate your help in controlling and eradicating Noxious Weeds in Wright County.
