Fulton Co. Commissioners give go ahead to remove beavers, dams

Bugs, rodents, pests, even deer on area roadways are all fairly common animal world problems that people deal with often.  Fulton County has a different kind of animal issue - beavers.


Highway Superintendent John Geier explained the current issue to Fulton County Commissioners.



Geier says his department has never paid for trapping before.   At one time, the lake association had split costs on trapping with maintenance on the county ditch at that location.  Commissioners noted that the lake association doesn’t want to pay for the issue. 


Geier was approved by commissioners to seek help in fixing the issue.  Commissioners said it would be cheaper now than to wait for more beavers adding to the population at the site.
