Attached is Marion SWCD’s April 1, 2020 board meeting agenda. The board meeting will be held electronically thru Zoom Video Conference this month as the SWCD does their part to aid in complying with social distancing and is encouraging people to stay home to stop the spread of the Corona Virus.  The board will only address a few essential business items at this meeting so the SWCD can continue to operate and meet their ongoing responsibilities.

All the SWCD Budget, Board, Committee Meetings and Work Sessions are still open to the public having access regardless of the place or means the meeting is held in or at. If anyone is not able to access the video meeting thru the Internet, than the office will open only for viewing the meeting and then close immediately afterwards. If you would otherwise need to attend in person, please call the office at least 24 hrs. before the meeting at 503-391-9927 or email at [email protected] to see if we can help make other accommodations for you and to let us know you are coming here. We must enforce strict social distancing and other measures to keep individuals from being in close contact with one another if anyone is here in person. The doors will unlock approximately 10 minutes before the meeting starts so please stay in your car until the doors are open and maintain at least a 6 foot distance from anyone else as you enter the building.
