Noxious Weed Control
The control of noxious weeds in Lee County requires a cooperative effort of
all property owners in the county. The Board of Supervisors and the County Weed
Commissioner encourage all property owners to become familiar with the various
species of noxious weeds in the state and take the necessary control measures,
during the prime growing season, to control these weeds.
Code of Iowa
The responsibility for the control of noxious weeds is established by Chapter
317 of the Code of Iowa. The code further defines what a noxious weed is and the
role of the County Weed Commissioner.
The code requires each property owner to control the noxious weeds that may be
on their property (317.10).
