Upper Loup NRD has Director Opening in Sub-District 4

Natural Resource Districts (NRDs) have local leadership responsibility for protecting groundwater from overuse and pollution; soil conservation; planting trees and wildlife habitat; flood control; improving urban conservation; and recreation. Often, the NRD builds partnerships with other agencies and organizations, including the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, universities, municipalities, counties, and private organizations, in an effort to provide local control and local solutions to natural resources challenges.

The Upper Loup NRD is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors. The district is divided into 5 sub-districts; two board members are elected from each sub-district, and one at-large member is elected. Candidates for sub-district board positions must reside in the sub-district for which they are elected; the at-large board member must reside within the boundaries of the URNRD. Directors serve four-year terms, with half of the Board seats up for election every two years.

The Upper Loup Natural Resources District (NRD) is seeking an individual to fill a vacancy on the Board of Directors from the sub-district 4 area.  This area includes all of Blaine County and the southern portion of Brown County.  

The ULNRD Board of Directors is responsible for aiding in establishing District and conservation policies (NSWCP), rules and regulations, and adopting the necessary budget, in order to fulfill the responsibilities of the District as authorized and required by law.  The day-to-day management as well as helping establish policies, programs, rules and regulations is the General Manager’s responsibility.  Not only do the board members make decisions about conservation programs at the District level, they also bring a wealth of local judgment and experience when adapting state and national programs to local situations. 

The Board holds regularly scheduled monthly meetings on the second Thursday of every month at the NRD office in Thedford.      

Applicants need to submit a letter indicating their interest to serve to the Upper Loup NRD, 39252 Highway 2, Thedford, NE  69166 by Tuesday March 26th.  More information can be obtained by calling 308-645-2250.
