WENATCHEE — The Chelan County Noxious Weed Control Board is looking for two new members to replace longtime members who are retiring from service.
The board consists of five voting members and a representative from the Washington State University County Extension. Board members are appointed from three regions in the county to give a broad representation of the county landowners.
Of the five members, three are required to be involved in the primary production of agricultural products.
The open positions are in Region 1, which includes the Wenatchee and Malaga areas. The second open board position is an at-large position, which can be filled from any of the three regions. Region 2 includes Cashmere, Monitor, Leavenworth and the rest of the western part of the county. Region 3 includes the Sunnyslope area, Entiat and Chelan.
The Chelan County Noxious Weed Control Board’s mission is to promote compliance with the state’s noxious weed laws through education, technical assistance and enforcement, when necessary, to protect the agricultural lands and natural resources of Chelan County.
The board meets quarterly, on the second Tuesday of the month.
