There is musk thistle growing on the KU West Campus, south of 15th street, west of the maintenance building. This is a noxious weed. Who is responsible for controlling this: KU, the state or the city?
Julie Wyatt, an environmental inspector for the city of Lawrence, said the university is responsible for getting rid of any noxious weeds on the property.
She said the city typically issues violation notices to property owners, and if the weeds are not removed, then the city hires a contractor and the property owner is billed for the work.
