Seeking advisory committee applications
The Rice Creek Watershed District (RCWD) is seeking applications for membership on its Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC). The RCWD is particularly interested in reviewing applications from members of the agricultural community and/or residents from the portion of the RCWD within Anoka, Hennepin or Washington Counties. Ramsey County membership is full at this time.
CAC members are appointed by the RCWD Board of Managers for 1-year terms. Previously appointed members may continue to serve on the committee beyond the initial one-year term at will. RCWDs CAC currently meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Lino Lakes City Hall. However, there are no meetings in July or December.
The District encompasses approximately 186 square miles of urban and rural land in parts of Anoka, Hennepin, Ramsey, and Washington Counties and contains 39 lakes and numerous ditches, marshes, wetlands and wildlife areas. The purpose of the CAC is to advise and assist the managers on all matters affecting the interests of the district and make recommendations to the managers on all contemplated projects and improvements in the district. Members are also asked to keep current on water-related issues in their community and relay this information to the district.
The deadline for applications is March 31, 2014. For more information or to request an application please contact the RCWD at (763) 398-3070 or visit our website,
