Noxious Weed Notification
Black Hawk County is required to annually adopt a weed destruction program in accordance with Chapter 317 of the Code of Iowa. Failure to comply with due notice of an order to abate can result in the County contracting to have the weeds abated and assessing the property owner for the cost plus an administrative fee.
Each owner and each person in the possession or control of any lands in unincorporated Black Hawk County shall cut, burn, or otherwise destroy all noxious weeds thereon, as defined in the provisions of Chapter 317 of the Code of Iowa, at such time in each year and in such manner as shall prevent said weeds from blooming or coming to maturity, and shall keep said lands free from such growth of any other weeds as shall render the streets or highways adjoining said land unsafe for public travel. Noxious weeds shall be cut or otherwise destroyed on or before June 1st of each year and as often thereafter as is necessary to prevent said production.
