County Contracted Services
Rio Blanco County is available to provide herbicide application services for designated List A species and select List B species depending upon the species and where it occurs within the county.
The county may treat other noxious weed species if deemed that they pose a serious threat to the lands in Rio Blanco County. All noxious weeds are treated on a priority basis and as the counties work schedule allows. Herbicide costs are not included in any labor charges.
Application charges are as follows:
- Contracts are charged $30 an hour for one truck, sprayer, fuel and one person. Charges start from the time we reach the property until the time we leave the property. A deposit for the estimated charges is required before we can proceed with any work.
- Government agencies are charged $100 an hour for one truck, sprayer, fuel and one person. Charges start from the time we leave the shop in Meeker and end when we return back to the shop in Meeker. All government contracts require a purchase order number before we can proceed with any work.
