OREGON COUNTY SWCD BOARD ELECTIONS

Let it be known that the Oregon County Soil and Water Conservation District will hold an election for one supervisor in each of two different territories in the county from February 1 to February 20, 2024.  Anyone that owns a farm in Territory I (Highland, Moore, Black Pond, Franks, Woodside, and Falling Springs Townships) or Territory III (Couch Oak Grove, Jeff, Jobe, Billmore, Myrtle, and Cedar Bluff Townships), and meets the qualifications listed below, may be considered as a candidate in the election. 

Supervisors of the district administer district policies and programs, district personnel, and cost-share funding made available by the one-tenth-of-one-percent parks, soils and water sales tax. During fiscal year 2023, the district provided $267,911.42 of cost-share funds to assist Oregon County landowners with installing agricultural erosion control and water quality practices.

 

The qualifications required to be a supervisor are:

Being a land representative from the district (10 CSR 70-4.010 (1) (I)). A land representative is defined as the owner or representative authorized by power of attorney of any farm lying within an area proposed to be established, and subsequently established, as a soil and water conservation district under Chapter 278, RSMo. Each farm is entitled to representation by a land representative: provided, however that the land representative is a taxpayer of the county within which the soil and water district is located.
Residing in, or owning a farm in, the area from which he/she is nominated where there is an expiring term.
