Caldwell Mayor Garret Nancolas has made several attempts to get the ITD to cut unsightly and dangerously tall weeds in the I-84 median within Caldwell City limits to no avail. The worst area is near the Caldwell Airport.
Nancolas recently reported the following to a citizen:
“We have again contacted ITD and they state that this will be all they do now. They assert that even if they mow the weeds the cut weeds present the same fire hazard. They also assert this is the directive of the new Director!!

From Mayor Nancolas: “I have spoken again with the District Engineer from ITD and explained my concerns from a Code Enforcement standpoint. He understood and committed to have the weeds cut within the City Limits of all cities within his jurisdiction. He could not give me an exact date, but said he would assign the work to be done.”
