The first point of contact for any weed complaint should be the local unit of government.
For rural areas, landowners need to contact their township officials.
For areas within city limits, landowners need to contact their city officials.
The Noxious Weed Law affects growing plants. Some plants are noxious because they can harm people, animals, the food we eat, and nature. MDA, county, city, and township officials inspect land and ask owners to destroy their noxious weeds. Destroying them stops them from spreading and harming neighbors. Land owners that refuse to destroy their noxious weeds can be forced to do so. (Courtesy of MDA website)
