The Board met with members of County Soil Conservation District (Bruce Hanson, Bob Reggear, Dave Daniels and Kelly Rosellini) for an update on the Districtís programs, the five year plan and the 2010/2011 fiscal year budget.
The function of the Conservation districts has been under legislative review and as a result of the review was the passage of HB576. This legislation provides for amendments to the existing code for soil conservation districts. They will still provide assistance to private land owners on natural resource issues.

The highest priority is water quality and resource program for this district. One focus is the watershed and documentation of the resources for the area. The district keeps their focus on water quality and local resources.
