Cass SWCD soliciting individuals for SWCD board

The Cass Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is soliciting names of individuals desiring to be appointed to serve on the Cass SWCD Board of Supervisors.

The untimely death of David Harder, District 4 supervisor, created a vacancy on the SWCD Board. Minnesota statute says, “If a vacancy occurs, the Board shall fill the vacancy by appointment.”

The Cass SWCD Board meets the first Thursday of every month in the Cass County Courthouse Board Room in Walker.

Working in conjunction with the Cass County Environmental Services Department (ESD), the Cass SWCD is dedicated to assisting private landowners, farm producers, lake associations, townships and other constituent groups in implementing conservation practices aimed at controlling soil runoff and erosion, maintaining water quality and conducting proper forest management on private lands.

The board also serves as the Natural Resource Advisory Committee for the Cass County Land Department. Board members meet monthly to approve cost share agreements with landowners and provide input to County Land Department, Forestry, and ESD Natural Resource issues affecting Cass County.

Contact the Cass SWCD office at the Cass County Courthouse, PO Box 3000, Walker, MN 56484 or call Brenda Davis at 218-547-7399 by Aug. 30 to be considered for the Cass SWCD vacancy to be filled by board appointment.
