The RDEK Board Director says recent amendments give their Invasive Plant bylaw some pretty sharp teeth.
In the past, the Regional District had to issue notice to property owners before taking action.
Gay says its important for property owners to educate themselves on the types invasive plants so they aren’t contributing to the spread of weeds.
The Board Chair says they have also appointed two staff members as weed control officers.
He adds staff have been directed to create guidelines around how they prioritize efforts when different cases of invasive weeds occur.
