Weed Control Act

Noxious Weed Control Act

Notice is hereby given pursuant to the Noxious Weed Control Act, section 2-955, subsection 1(a), to every person who owns or controls land in Wayne County, Nebraska, that noxious weeds being or growing on such land shall be controlled at such frequency as to prevent establishment, provide eradication, or reduce further propagation or dissemination of weeds.

Upon failure to observe this notice, the County Weed Superintendent is required to do the following:

  1. Proceed pursuant to the law and issue legal notice to the landowner of the property infested with noxious weeds, giving such landowner 15 days to control the noxious weed infestation. Conviction for noncompliance may result in a $100 per day fine to the landowner with a maximum fine of $1500.
  2. Should more immediate control be required, proceed pursuant to the law and have the weeds controlled by such method as deemed necessary, the expense of which shall constitute a lien and be entered as a tax against the land, and be collected as other real estate taxes are collected, or by other means as provided by law.
