Order and Notice of Hearing on Resolution for Allowing Minor Ditch Improvement of Drainage System Affecting Highway - County Ditch 55



Due to redetermination of ditch benefits, Sibley County will be seeding 16.5 foot buffers on County Ditches 23, 29, 42, 43, 50 and 54 as well as Joint Ditch 18 SM.

All benefitted landowners on these systems were sent a notice of this seeding back in April.  Our contractors have had difficulty seeding due to the late spring and now wet summer!  They will get out there soon to cut down the weeds and seed those buffers!

Since 1977, every new and improved public judicial and county ditch should have one rod of grass strip (16 1/2 feet) on each side of a ditch.
