The County Agricultural Commissioner has the same authority to abate <br />nuisances as the County Fire Marshal. The Fire Marshal's Office, however, will continue to <br />provide consultation and assistance to the program. <br />DISCUSSION <br />Hazardous vegetation (weeds) pose a fire threat during the summer months and property owners <br />should control them. To eliminate hazardous vegetation (weeds), the Town has historically <br />adopted a Hazardous Vegetation (Weed) Abatement Program. <br />PREPARED BY : TODD CAPURSO <br />Director of Parks and Public Works <br />Reviewed by: Assistant Town Manager(�"Town Attorney <br />Clerk Administrator Finance Community Development <br />N:\PPW\ MANAGEMENT \COUNCIL \COUNCILREPORTS\2010 RepoitMovember 15 \Weed.Abatement.nov1510.doe <br />
