County Board Looks Into Noxious Weeds

In the recent Bond County Board meeting, Board Chairman Howard Elmore announced that a committee was being formed to look into the possible addition of a county noxious weed employee. Bond County hasn’t had such an employee for several years.

Elmore said an individual has expressed interest to him in filling that position and road commissioners throughout the county are also interested in creating the post. Board Member Gerald “Spanky” McCray noted that the northern portion of Bond County would particularly benefit from someone monitoring noxious weed growth.

McCray and Board Member Wes Pourchot agreed to serve on the exploratory committee.

The board also approved liquor licenses for Copper Dock Winery and Kenny’s Lake Stop in Keyesport.
