Council takes aim at weedy harbor

ESCANABA — Plans are moving along for getting rid of invasive weeds at the Escanaba Harbor, the Escanaba City Council was informed at its regular meeting Thursday. Council approved the purchase of a herbicide to combat nuisance plants there this spring. During the past few years, invasive weeds – including the Eurasian water milfoil and the curly pondweed – have caused problems for boaters in the local harbor. For example, the weeds get caught in boat propellers.
