Residents in Isanti County interested in joining the Soil and Water Conservation District as a supervisor have until the end of the month to file for candidacy.
Supervisors meet on the third Tuesday of every month with many supervisors also participating in sub-committee meetings or regional conservation groups and organizations. The primary responsibilities of supervisors are to set the district’s priorities and vision while supporting the staff’s work to achieving their goals. The SWCD states that serving as a supervisor is a terrific opportunity for people who want a voice in management of environment and conservation of the land.
This year, two positions are up for election, District 2 which covers Athens, Bradford and Oxford Townships and District 5 which covers North Branch and Isanti Townships. Supervisors serve a four year term and you must reside in the district that you wish to apply for to be considered.
Affidavits of candidacy for due by Tuesday, May 31st, an election will be held in November to select supervisors for their districts. For more information on how to file, you can check out the Isanti SWCD website.
