County to charge for roadside mowing

Boone County Commissioners on Monday put some “teeth” into the requirement that rural property owners must mow weeds and grass on county roadsides and ditches abutting their land.
If a landowner fails to mow abutting roads and ditches within 10 days of receiving notice, the county will complete the mowing at a cost of $450 per mile to the landowner.
The mowing rate is the same as the rate in neighboring Nance County. It was set in a resolution passed by commissioners on Monday, June 24. It becomes effective July 1, 2013.
