Candidates sought for Utah's conservation district boards


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints


Here's your chance to help protect and improve Utah's land, water, and watersheds in your local community.

The Utah Conservation Commission is now taking nominations for three of the five elected board member positions in each of the 38 local conservation districts across the state.

These boards provide citizens the opportunity for local direction of federal and state natural resource conservation programs as they impact private lands.

They also impact conservation activities on public lands. For 70 years CDs have helped install conservation practices that have protected and improved Utah's basic natural resources.

Conservation districts are unique limited purpose local government entities and political subdivisions of the state with authority from Utah laws.

They are governed by a board of five citizens elected by their peers in a special election conducted by mail. Board members serve a four-year term of office.

Nominations by petition are due at the Conservation Commission office at the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food on or before Jan. 4, 2008. Ballots will be mailed the latter part of January 2008.

Candidate nomination petition and ballot request forms, and further information about the election process can be obtained at http://ag.utah.gov/conservation/soilcons.html, by emailing UDAF-SoilCons@utah.gov, by calling (801-538-7120 or 7171), and by writing to the Utah Conservation Commission, PO Box 146500, Salt Lake City, 84114-6500, or, after the first week of January 2008, from local CD, USU Extension Service, and USDA Service Center officials.
