County official attends weed control conference


Randy Hiett, Cheyenne County’s weed superintendent, recently attended the Nebraska Weed Control Association (NWCA) 68th Annual Conference. This year’s conference was held in Kearney on Feb. 9-11. The theme was “Formula for Successful Weed Management.”

The annual business meeting luncheon was held on the second day of the conference, and resulted in Marty Craig, Dawson/Gosper County weed superintendent being re-elected as secretary/treasurer of the NWCA. Other NWCA officers are: president, Brian Crabtree, Hamilton County weed superintendent, and vice president, Todd Boller, Fillmore County weed superintendent.

This event was the first of four opportunities to obtain the required 20 hours of continuing education annually.  Each superintendent must answer roll call twice per day, complete and pass the exam at the end of each day to receive his or her 10 hours of continuing education credit. The NWCA Education Committee works hard to create trainings that will have learning opportunities for new and “seasoned” superintendents, while following the guidelines mandated by the Noxious Weed Act.  The next training opportunity will be NWCA Spring Training at Kearney Ramada Inn April 1-2, 2015.
