MnDOT asks farmers for reaction to ditch mowing rules

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

It was a move that angered a lot of farmers in Minnesota when MnDOT implemented a permit system to regulate who can mow grass in roadside ditches to produce hay for their cattle. 

Because of this pushback, the legislature ordered MnDOT to halt any regulation and host listening sessions with communities across the state about the practice. 

Wednesday night, MnDOT is asking anyone concerned about mowing procedures to head to their district headquarters in Rochester. The session lasts from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  

This is the last of seven sessions conducted this fall.
