Appointment

The Asotin County Noxious Weed Control Board (ACNWCB) consists of five members appointed by the Asotin County Commissioners, each representing a different geographical section of Asotin County. Weed Board members act in accordance with Revised Code of Washington (R.C.W.) 17.10 and Chapter 16 750 of the Washington Administrative Code (W.A.C.).


Weed Board Philosophy

The invasion, establishment and spread of noxious weeds is one of the most serious threats to our natural resources today. Our wildlife, native vegetation, water quality, aesthetics, agricultural production, forest production and recreation either have been or are at risk of being altered to unacceptable levels due to the spread of noxious weeds.

The Asotin County Noxious Weed Control Board is funded by property tax revenue and strives to allocate those public dollars toward the interests of those who paid them; namely, the landowners and land-users in Asotin County. We are working to establish and maintain an integrated vegetation management approach toward the control of noxious weeds within our boundaries. We value the diversity of the land as well as the diversity of the people who choose to make this county their home.
