ROADSIDE SPRAYING This year the Cottonwood County Highway Dept. will again be spraying road- side ditches. In an attempt to accommodate use for haying, the County will allow individual owners to come into the office to sign up for areas of roadside ditches they do not want sprayed. Previous no spray areas will not be recognized in 2020. Landowners and renters must go to http://www.co.cottonwood.mn.us/county- departments/highway/forms/ and fill out and send in a no spray request with map. Areas not to be sprayed shall be marked on a map, and the owners shall then be held responsible for vegetation control. Vegetation control in the right-of-way includes brush, trees, thistle, leafy spurge and other noxious weeds. Should the weed inspector notify us, or if problem areas are found, the County will spray those areas and bill the property owner accordingly. All applications and maps must be filled out by Friday, May 15, 2020. ROADSIDE SPRAYING This year the Cottonwood County Highway Dept. will again be spraying road- side ditches.
