How is noxious weed control enforced?

In some cases the County Weed Manager may attempt to provide a courtesy call regarding a report or sighting of weeds from a public place on your property. The Colorado Noxious Weed Act requires county weed programs to notify the county resident of a sighting of noxious weeds on the property by certified mail. In this notification you will receive the name of the weed that was seen, a management objective, and a specified period in which the landowner is required to act upon the notice. Should the landowner not comply, the local governing body reserves the right to issue a warrant to enter the property and place a lien on the property for the cost of control.
