The Muskingum Soil and Water Conservation District met Monday afternoon with the County Commissioners Office to discuss their budget.
They are required by law to present their budget to the commissioners by June first and that is why they were there today. Muskingum Soil and Water Conservation District Administrator, Lisa Crock said they run tests on water quality and over the past five years they have drawn over 390 samples to test. They study water quality, nitrogen and phosphorus and how it moves through the soil.
“We’re required by law to present a draft budget to the County Commissioners each year by June the first, so that’s why we were down here before June 1st presenting our preliminary budget for 2020. Crock said. She added “For the most part, it’s actually a few thousand dollars less than this year, due to some expenses that we will not be incurring next year, that we did this year.”
Crock said that the meeting went really well with Athe commissioners and said it is important to keep them up to date with what they are doing.
