The Chisago County Board of Commissioners seeks applicants for appointment on the Lower St. Croix River Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan – Policy Committee. The positions are an at-large appointment. Chisago County needs two at-large appointees on the Policy Committee and two alternate appointees.
The purpose of the Policy Committee of the Lower St. Croix River Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan (Plan) is to develop and make recommendations on annual work plans, revisions and modifications to agreements, and amendments to the Plan.
