Roadside Weed Initiative Program
For the 10th consecutive year Indigo Shire Council is delivering the Roadside Weed Initiative program. This program helps landholders prevent the spread of weeds on roadsides adjacent to their property.
In 2011, 15 residents participated in the Roadside Weed Initiative, which resulted in targeted weed spraying of over 111km of roadsides. The program is an opportunity for residents to take ownership of their roadside and look after it to the same standard as their property.
While the responsibility for the control of regionally controlled and regionally prohibited weeds on roadsides continues to be debated between the State Government and Local Government, this program works positively with interested landholders and tackles the problem on the ground by providing an incentive.
Preference will be given to areas and weeds that have not already been treated, as well as to joint applications with adjacent neighbours and to applications that follow up on spraying undertaken last year.
Application forms can be obtained from Indigo Shire offices or from Indigo’s website. Any queries regarding this program can be directed to Council’s Natural Resource Management Support Officer on 02 6028 1100. Please note that applications close Wednesday 22 August 2012.
