The Board of Supervisors
We are governed by a Board of Supervisors dedicated to conservation partnerships with producers. The current board members are Justin Zahradka, Jay Skorheim, Jay Gudajtes, and Brent Riskey. We have three elected positions, one of which is expiring at the end of 2022, held by Justin Zahradka. Justin is not seeking another 6 year term. Anyone may run for this elected seat as a write in candidate in the November Election. We also have two appointed seats on the board, with one currently open in that category. Anyone interested in serving on the board should contact the soil conservation district office for more information on the roles and duties of board members.
Each Spring we hold an Annual Soil Conservation District Banquet which all of the public is encouraged to attend. Several conservation awards are given out on an annual basis. In 2022, we are pleased to announce Mark Bennington Farms as the conservation district overall achievement winner for Walsh County.
Stay tuned for more information on the 2023 banquet. We announce the meeting via The Source newspaper, Grafton Record, and the Walsh County Press.
Elections take place during the County Election. Election information is available from the county auditor. Any person interested in learning more about our board is welcome to attend our monthly meetings held the 2nd Thursday of each month at the SCD office starting at 8:00 am. These meetings are open to the public and include regular attendees from other agencies, including Extension and NRCS, as well as commissioner Karen Anderson.
