Public Works Maintenance and Operations Division is responsible for ensuring the County's right-of-ways are clear of brush, tall grass, or any other items that could be deemed as a hazard. Southwest Florida's subtropical climate is conducive to extreme vegetation growth. This vegetation control issue is exacerbated by exotic invasive plants like the Brazilian Pepper Tree which can see growth rates of 6-8 feet per year.
Highest Priority: The Maintenance and Operations Division considers line of sight issues and brush in roadways as the highest brush control priority.
