Noxious Weeds:
The RM has a dedicated weed inspector to help control the spread of noxious weeds in the area. Please be on the lookout for some of these common species found in our area.

Wild Parsnip: wild parsnip
Be on the lookout for Wild Parsnip aka Poison Parsnip. While the roots are edible, the leaves can be very harmful to humans and pets. Wild parsnip is designated a noxious weed and resembles the appearance of dill plants. Wild parsnip produces a chemical in its sap and, if skin contact is made, can result in severe and painful second degree burns, blisters, or rashes. If the sap gets into the eyes, it has the potential to cause permanent blindness. Some cases of wild parsnip have been found in the ditches in the RM of Aberdeen. If found, please report the plant to the RM office. Click here for more information on Wild Parsnip.

Bylaw Enforcement Officer:
To avoid a visit from the Bylaw Enforcement Officer, and possible fines, please familiarize yourself with the RM’s bylaws. Our bylaws are available on our website under the "Governance" tab, in addition to being accessible for viewing at the municipal office. Photocopies of the bylaws may be prepared at $1 per page.
