Logan Wilde – Bag of Woad Program
This program has been run in past years and is designed to help to reduce the growth of Dyer’s Woad while educating county residents on the problem with this noxious weed. Wilde was asking for the county to participate in the program up to $1,500 to pay for the disposal. Individuals on the weed board and on the council question its effectiveness since often the weeds that are taken are a part of a large field where all of the weed is not eradicated and it simple grows right back.
Wilde was directed to contact the Weed Board and make a presentation to them on the program. The decision was unanimous.

Johanson had sent a land use agreement to the county for review, but there had been last minute changes on the day of the council meeting. County attorney Jann Farris reported that the county engineer expressed continued concerns about some areas of the agreement and the county needed additional time to review the changes.
