The Board is composed of five voting members, each representing a different area of the county. These members are appointed to the Board by the county commissioners. Four of the five board members are required to be engaged in the primary production of agricultural products. Each board member serves on the board as an unpaid volunteer. The WSU Cooperative Extension agent also serves as a non-voting member of the board.
The Board establishes policies and procedures that will carry out the mandates of the state weed control law, Chapter 17.10 of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW). The board employs a coordinator who educates and informs the public about noxious weeds, conducts on-going early detection surveys, and assists landowners in developing control strategies. If land owners are unwilling to voluntarily comply with the state weed law, then the board may use the enforcement provisions of the law.
