The La Plata County Weed Control Office and the La Plata Conservation District have partnered to offer residents, ditch companies and homeowners’ associations financial assistance in treating weeds on private lands. The program will cover up to 50 percent of the actual cost of treatment materials for weeds identified on Colorado’s noxious weeds lists A and B. To receive the cost-share reimbursement, applicants must work with Weed Control Office to confirm the presence of targeted weeds, craft a treatment plan and monitor treatment in subsequent years. The maximum reimbursement available is $600 per private landowner, $1,000 per homeowners’ association and $1,200 for per ditch company. The program will reimburse only for materials purchased between March 1 and Nov. 15, 2017.
