Vegetative Management Plan

Beginning at the end of May, the Mille Lacs County Public Works Department will begin its vegetative management plan. Noxious and invasive weeds as well as unwanted brush will be cut and/or treated with herbicides. If you own land south of MNTH 23, it may be adjacent to the roadside scheduled for treatment with herbicide.
