Avoidance of county spraying comes with a price

Wadena County is agreeable to accommodating private landowners along county highways where herbicide control of roadside brush and noxious weeds has been carried out.

The Wadena County Highway Department is requesting those objecting to roadside spraying fill out an exemption form by July 7.

Those wishing to be excluded automatically assume the responsibility for brush control on all county right-of-ways that are posted for no spraying. If an excluded property owner fails to maintain brush control on county road right-of-way that is posted, the county retains the right to subsequently spray the right-of-way and bill the owner for these services.

To request a spraying exemption form call the Wadena County Highway Department at (218) 631-7636. Completed forms should be mailed to Wadena County Highway Department, 221 Harry-Rich Drive, Wadena, MN, 56482 and marked to the attention of either Ryan Odden, P.E.-Wadena County Engineer, or Jason Miller, Wadena County Highway Maintenance Foreman.
