The Washington Conservation District has a vacancy on its Board of Supervisors for District 1, which includes multiple communities in the northern Washington County. As redistricting will likely change the boundary of District 1, candidates from Forest Lake and Hugo are being encouraged to apply as these communities will likely remain in District 1. The position will be filled by appointment until an elected supervisor takes office in January of 2013. Supervisors are responsible for setting policy and program direction for the Soil and Water Conservation District. Specific responsibilities include attending one monthly Board meeting, plus additional committee meetings and regional conservation events. Supervisors do not receive a salary, however they are paid per diem plus expenses. Interested individuals are requested to send a letter of interest by Friday, April 6 to the attention of: Jay Riggs, District Manager, Washington Conservation District, 1380 W. Frontage Road, TH-36, Stillwater, Minnesota 55082 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information call Riggs at 651-275-1136, ext. 20. To learn more, visit website: www.mnwcd.org.
