Abstract:
Montana Weed Control Districts represent the boundaries for each district. Each County in Montana is statutorily mandated to have a Weed Control Districts. Each district has a Weed Coordinator. These coordinators are in charge of helping citizen manage/control noxious weeds. This data has each Weed Coordinator listed along with website and contact information for the County Weed District. The legislation that oversees the creation, maintenance, or dissolution of this type of district can be found: http://leg.mt.gov/bills/mca_toc/7_11_10.htm. The weed districts are based on county boundaries. The weed district attribute information for this dataset was collected from the Montana Department of Agriculture's Noxious Weed Program. Websites available were found online. For more information on Weed Control in Montana please visit the Montana Weed Control Association: http://www.mtweed.org. For more information on the state of Montana Noxious Weed Program with the Montana Department of Agriculture: http://agr.mt.gov/agr/Programs/Weeds/
Purpose:
The Montana Weed Districts are a part of the Montana Spatial Data Infrastructure's Administrative Boundary Framework. These boundaries are to be used for the mapping or analysis of weed control/management districts. These boundaries are based on current Montana county boundary lines.
