SWCD Seeking Candidates for the Board of Supervisors


The Knox Soil & Water Conservation District is seeking candidates for its Board of Supervisors. Two supervisors will be elected at the Annual Meeting in 2021. The two supervisor-elects will begin a three-year term in January 2022. Board Supervisors guide the district, its staff and cooperating agencies in efforts to implement conservation programs in the county that address management and conservation of soil, water and related resources. Board members should have a sincere interest in conservation and must have the enthusiasm, dedication and time to serve as an elected official.
