Coos County Herbicide Cost-Share Program
back! The Coos County Noxious Weed Advisory Board has worked hard over
the past year to revamp the herbicide cost-share program. Overturn in
the Advisory Board has created some hardship and time constraints which
delayed our efforts, but the Board of Commissioners recognized the
importance of this program to our county and has supported this
process. Limitations on funds and personnel time made the old
cost-share model unsustainable. The current Advisory Board has worked
hard to retain the basic structure of the program but has also
creatively reworked parts of it so that it better fits their current
capacity (in terms of funding and “people time”), while
still striving to meet the county-wide weed management priorities.
Coos County Noxious Weed Advisory Board is now accepting Herbicide
Cost-Share Applications. This year the cost-share program will be
focusing on assisting landowners with herbicides to treat noxious weeds
that have been identified by Coos County as “targeted for
control”, these can be found on Coos County’s official
Noxious Weed List under “T”. All applications must be
completed and received by 5:00 pm on May 31, 2018. Applications are
available for pickup and drop off at Coos County Planning Department
(225 N. Adams St. Coquille), Oregon State University Extension Office
(631 Alder St. Myrtle Point) or on the website located on the
County’s homepage under County Boards and Committees – Weed
Board. You can also download the application from the Coos County OSU
cost-share program will be able to pay 50% of the cost and the
applicant will be responsible for the rest. The Advisory Board is
requiring successful applicants to attend one of two trainings on
pesticide use and safety (June 19 or June 27 - - more information
provided in the application). The Advisory Board is in the process of
contracting with an herbicide vendor and will not have prices available
until the training. Applicants will be notified of the cost of the
requested herbicide and surfactant as well as the location and date
when herbicides can be picked-up during the training. The training will
be a great opportunity to learn about weed control, weed identification
and safety measures when handling herbicides. Even if you don’t
use herbicides the training provides an educational opportunity.
