Sheffey: Roadside weeds getting too tall

PULASKI COUNTY — The “amber waves” of weeds along county roads is getting to be a little too much this year, according to at least one Pulaski County supervisor.
Board of Supervisors Chairman Joe Sheffey said he has received more calls about mowing along roads than anything else this year.
“Is it a funding issue?” Sheffey asked Virginia Department of Transportation Resident Engineer David Clarke at the board’s recent meeting.

Clarke said funding is not the problem.
“It’s because we’re going more and more to contract mowers,” and they also have contracts to mow in other jurisdictions, Clarke said.
“We seem to be the last ones” on the list, Clarke said.
Sheffey said the mowing is definitely “really slow” this year.
Clarke said the local office is working on changing the language in next year’s mowing contracts to ensure the mowing gets done more frequently.
