County roads mowed
The Potter County Highway Department started mowing this week.
All roads in Potter County will be mowed to remove the top five feet of grass. Unlike past years, no ditches will be left for haying.
Potter County Highway Superintendent Steve Smith said that the five foot cut allows the county to spray along the edges of the road to control weeds and better maintain the roads with the motor graders. From a safety standpoint, it also provides more visual access to the ditches, which helps eliminate deer and other wildlife collisions.
The top cut mowing will start on the south half of Potter County and move north, and generally takes a little over a month to complete. If you have questions contact Smith at 769-1011.
