The MD will be conducting its annual Vegetation Management Program on municipally-owned road allowances for the destruction of prohibited noxious weeds, the control of noxious weeds and the control of woody species, by application of herbicides from June 1 through to September 30.
The 2022 Road Allowance Vegetation Management Program is specifically targeted for the Smith area, including municipal road allowances within Townships 67 and north to the Athabasca River. Herbicide applications may be performed on all MD road allowances.
Any landholder that does not want herbicide treatment performed on the municipally-owned road allowance(s) that are located adjacent to their property, can complete an Exemption from Municipal Road Allowance Herbicide Application Agreement, which is available for download in the Agricultural Programs section of the website.
Once entered into the Agreement, the landholder assumes the responsibility of prohibited noxious weed destruction, noxious weed control and woody species control on the road allowance.
