On Tuesday, October 11, the South Platte Natural Resources District (SPNRD) Board of Directors (Board) held its monthly meeting at 5:00 p.m. in the South Platte NRD Conference Room at 551 Parkland Drive, Sidney, NE.
The Board approved the Long Range Implementation Plan (Plan) which is updated every five years and is an important tool used for budget forecasting and implementing our vision to conserve, protect, enhance, and manage the natural resources in the SPNRD. The Plan also aligns with our mission to “Formulate and instigate forward-looking plans and programs through a cooperative process that will provide for the long-term protection and enhancement of the SPNRD’s natural resources while ensuring that major economic and social impacts are fully considered.” We have identified seven Key Program Planning Areas:
1. Ground and Surface Water Management
2. Land Treatment (Soil Conservation and Erosion Control)
3. Forestry and Range Management
4. Recreation, Fish and Wildlife
5. Waste Disposal and Pollution Control
6. Flood Prevention and Control
7. Drainage Improvement and Channel Rectification.
The Conservation Tree Program was updated to reflect a slight price increase for seedlings and the tree planter. Due to less interest, orders will no longer be delivered to Kimball and Deuel Counties. Customers will be notified when trees have been sorted and ready for pick up at the SPNRD office. The tree order form is included in our November newsletter, available on our website, sprnd.org/forestry, and at the office.
In other business, staff received approval to create bid packages and request proposals for roof shingling and replacement of seven windows on the main office building.
