SWCD holding special election

The annual special election for the Brown County Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors will be held Oct. 26. The District’s 71st annual meeting and banquet will be held in conjunction with the election. Open to the public, the event will be held at Southern Hills Career and Technical Center in Georgetown. The evening will begin with the Supervisor election from 6-7 p.m. followed by the banquet and meeting.

Any resident 18 years of age or older who resides in Brown County can seek election to the Brown SWCD Board of Supervisors. Names can be placed on the ballot in one of two ways. Candidates can be nominated by the Brown SWCD nominating committee or by nomination petition form. The nominating committee works throughout the year seeking candidates who are interested in the conservation and protection of natural resources within the county. The nominating committee slate of candidates is due on Sept. 11.

In addition, forms for petition candidates may be picked up at the Brown SWCD office, located 706 South Main Street in Georgetown. Potential candidates must secure a minimum of 10 signatures from residents and/or landowners from the county and submit the completed form to the Brown SWCD office by the close of business on Sept. 21.

Soil and water conservation districts, located in all 88 Ohio counties, are legal subdivisions of state government that provide natural resource management and education assistance to county landowners, youth and other units of government. Brown SWCD is funded by the county commissioners, and county funds are supplemented by match funds from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The District also utilizes grant funds for personnel and program needs. Brown SWCD is governed by a five-member board of county residents. Board members serve staggered three-year terms with two terms expiring this year.

Additional information about the election, banquet and meeting may be obtained by calling the Brown SWCD office at 937-378-4424 ext. 4.
