Conservation District Retains Current Officers

The Sheridan County Conservation District supervisors voted Tuesday night to retain the current slate of officers for another year.

Action came during the district’s regular monthly meeting. Re-elected to their current positions were Susan Holmes, chairman; Edith Heyward, vice chairman; and Orrin Connell, secretary-treasurer.

In other action, supervisors voted approval of a project to address a Russian olive infestation in the Little Goose watershed. Conservation District Manager Carrie Rogaczewski said the project is small, with a total cost of about $1,300, in which Russian olive found in riparian corridors will be treated with removal and a targeted herbicide.

Russian olive is considered an invasive species.

In other action, supervisors authorized Rogaczewski to proceed with applications for a series of small water projects ranging in cost from $7,000 to $35,000. Rogaczewski said applications are due by Jan. 1.

Supervisors also approved an update of the conservation district’s long-range plans covering the years 2020 to 2024.
