1651483As school starts, foot traffic along city sidewalks increases. Please be aware of the increased use and make sure that the sidewalks in front of our homes are clear. Make sure garbage containers are placed off the sidewalks and into the streets for pickup. Check the area behind any vehicles parked in driveways to make sure the sidewalk is not blocked or impeded by hitches sticking out into the foot traffic area. Cleared sidewalks make our community safe for all walkers, especially our children.

According to local noxious weed experts, September and October are the most effective months to spray those infestations of Spotted Knapweed, Canada Thistle and Field Bindweed. Remember it is against the law to allow noxious weeds to propagate and it is the property owner’s responsibility to get rid of the weeds. The county has provided us with weed information booklets that help identifying weed problems. Just stop by City Hall and pick one up. Or call the Rosebud County weed control official, Amy Adler, for help identifying noxious weeds on your property and the most effective sprays to use in your area.

If I can be of further help, please call 406-748-2300 ext. 2305. Please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Again, thanks for taking prompt attention helping to control our noxious weeds and sidewalk safety.
