ROAD RIGHT-OF-WAY NOXIOUS WEEDS & ENCROACHMENT

Rural Redwood County residents are reminded that the Redwood County road rights-of-way spray crew will be spraying from May through October. If you DO NOT want your rights-of-way sprayed (due to ditch hay harvesting), please post a sign at the beginning of the property (stop spray) and at the end (start spray). A map of this area should be sent to the Highway Department ([email protected]) or stop and we will note the location. The signs should be in place prior to May 1, 2024 and can be removed after November 1, 2024.  Note: Landowners are responsible for control of noxious weeds in the rights-of-way if they choose to post the signs.

The Redwood County Highway Dept. would like to remind landowners about right-of-way encroachment along County roads. Anyone disturbing the County’s right-of-way markers or anyone disturbing the County’s right-of-way by tilling or spraying an herbicide that kills the right-of-way vegetation will be subject to misdemeanor prosecution pursuant to statute 160.2715. In addition, the landowner will be required to seed these areas as needed.
