2017 ROADSIDE MOWING PROGRAM
The County of Minburn No. 27 Agricultural Service Board will be commencing the roadside mowing program in 2017. The program will consist of mowing all road allowances with up to a fifteen foot cut from the shoulder into the ditch. Persons wishing to cut hay on a road allowance need to complete all cutting prior to the mowing contractor’s arrival. If hay has been cut and is in swath, mowers will go around that particular swathed ditch however all standing grass will be mowed with absolutely no exceptions.
The County will commence mowing after July 15, 2017.
