A public hearing will be held during Smith County Commissioners Court at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 1, 2015, to gather public input regarding spraying weeds on county roads.
Commissioners requested that a public hearing be held to receive public comment on the county possibly continuing to spray herbicides along the edges of designated county roadways for weed control. If Commissioners decide to spray for vegetative management, it would allow for the spraying of 12 feet along the roadways for pre-emergence control of weeds.
Also on Tuesday, the Commissioners Court will continue discussions on any action they need to take regarding the Open Carry Act, which takes effect on January 1, 2016. Last week, Commissioners began discussions about what county court facilities could possibly need to have firearms prohibited for security reasons.
