Unwelcome weeds

To the editor:

Many of Baker County's weeds call county rights-of-way "home." It has been a priority of the Road Department not to allow their siblings to venture out into adjacent lands. This is a tall task, given declining revenue. Without a continued proactive weed program, weeds will quickly gain the upper hand.

I support the proposed weed levy and feel it will give a shot in the arm to the battle against weeds that call Baker County rights-of-way home.
