What is a Weed?

Each spring as the weather gets warmer, Fort Morgan residents must do battle with weeds. The City of Fort Morgan encourages citizens to get a head start on weeds before they get ahead of you.


Weeds are valueless, troublesome, or noxious plants that grow wild or where unwanted. Weeds fall under Nuisance and Sanitation of the Fort Morgan Municipal Code, Section 6-1-20. It is unlawful to allow weeds to grow or remain on your property or sidewalks and alleyways adjoining your property. This applies to any owner, tenant, or agent responsible for any lot, block, or parcel of land within the City.

“Take Control of Weeds” is a brochure with helpful hints about what you can do to rid your property of pesky weeds. It is available by following this link.
