Planning Department

The mission of the Butte-Silver Bow Planning Department, under the direction of the Planning Board, is to sustain and improve the health, safety, convenience and welfare of the citizens of Butte-Silver Bow and to plan for the future development of the community

Weed Control

The efficient and economical management of weeds is a major factor in the production of all crops, cultivated, as well as rangeland. Noxious weeds are an economic and environmental problem requiring intensive long-term management. Education and cooperation, rather than enforcement, are and will be the key to the success of the weed management program. The objective of the Weed Board will be to control, contain, and in some cases, eradicate noxious weeds and to maintain a vigilance for new and potential invasions of noxious weeds into the county.
