Big Horn County Weed and Pest, following the Big Horn County Commissioners direction, have decided to take proactive action and limit public access to the Weed and Pest building beginning March 23, 2020, until further notice. The Weed and Pest will be closed to public access, but will be staffed. All services will be available by phone, fax, and email.
We feel that this will help limit exposure for our employees, our families, and the community.
Public Health Orders will determine the duration or changes to this limited access. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time!
