Local Residents Call for New Weed Management Plan
November 7, 2018
Warren Phelps didn’t waste any time with niceties. He pointedly said the county likewise shouldn’t waste money in its noxious weed management.
Cheyenne County contracts it's noxious weed control to Cris Burks, C-Weed Management LLC. The problem, according to Phelps, is her time is shared with three other counties.
“Our current weed superintendent is inadequate,” he said. “I don’t think there’s any way she can do four counties.”
He cited examples of Canada Thistle not treated until it went to seed.
“It doesn’t do any good to spray after it has gone to seed,” he said.
