There is an opening on the Lee County Conservation Board for a new five-year term. Individuals, who are a resident of Lee County and are interested in being appointed by the Lee County Board of Supervisors to this voluntary term on the Conservation Board, should submit an application to the Lee County Auditor’s Office at 933 Ave H, Fort Madison 52627.
A board member has many duties assigned to them, and they must work well within a five member board. Conservation Boards are responsible to the taxpayers of the county to provide the best, diverse conservation/outdoor recreation program possible with the natural resources and funding available.
This is a five year term and the member will be selected based on how they demonstrate interest in conservation matters, as well as other criteria. This is an unpaid duty, but certain official county duties may be reimbursed.
Once appointed, county conservation board members become county officials and should work to address the conservation needs of the county in a positive, responsible manner. Conservation boards receive county tax money and other funds to carry out their duties.
