To assist landowners and occupants in identifying and developing control methods for legislated weeds, Red Deer County Council appoints four weed inspectors annually. Three of these individuals inspect on Red Deer County land and one is responsible for Sylvan Lake, Innisfail and Bowden.
One of their main goals is to create awareness about these new invasive weeds and why they must be controlled or eradicated.
This summer, residents may see one of these inspectors in town. Red Deer County has hired Nicole Alexander as the inspector assigned to the Innisfail area.
