Local residents involved in agriculture production are invited to apply for a position on the Snohomish County Noxious Weed Control Board. The county seeks qualified applicants to fill two, four-year positions on the board.
The board is supported by the county’s Public Works department and helps set policies and procedures for managing noxious weeds, administers the annual noxious weed program, and sets the countywide weed control plan and weed list.
“Managing noxious weeds is very important to our farms in Snohomish County and has a big impact on agriculture and on the health of our rivers and streams,” Public Works Director Steve Thomsen said. “We look forward to selecting board members who can help us move forward in a positive direction.”
Those interested in applying for a board position should visit www.snoco.org, search “position vacancy,” to print and complete an application form. Board positions are open continuously; county residents are encouraged to apply at any time.
The Noxious Weed Control Board is comprised of one member representing each of five county districts. For more information, visit www.snoco.org and search “noxious weed control board” or call 425-388-7548
