Anyone know someone that does fert in Chelsea? I have a friend that would occasionally like a spray for weeds, ect... maybe a couple apps/year. He had Tru Green doing it but didn't like the results, price, or all the apps they forced on him. Lot is 2-3 acres.

We now have a state police commercial vehicle enforcement unit hanging out in my area. I really really really hope I am following the regs correctly, I could not handle a large fine right now.

The first time I saw him yesterday he had a metal/scrap hauling rig pulled over then on the way home about a block away he had a gravel train pulled over. Then today he was at a local coney place eating lunch. I have a feeling this will put alot of small businesses out of business

We have the same regular guy around here that's been around for the last two years. I haven't been pulled by him lately, but I've certainly seen him around. He wrote me two warnings last year, but I think he sees my DOT's now, and assumes I got the other stuff addressed (simple ones). He's a younger guy and is pretty cool.
The Genesee Co. Sheriff Dept weighmaster doesn't even look twice. He passed me on I-75/23 just the other day and didn't even look twice.

Be proactive. Find him one day, go up to him, and ask him what his expectations are for you. Heck, take the guy out for lunch and discuss it if you are that worried about it! Good luck.
