Resolution 07-02: Support for Keeping Treasure & Sanders County FSA Office

  • Area Originating From: Area 4
  • General Session Action: Passed with Amendment
  • Submitted by: Treasure County Conservation District
 

WHEREAS, the Treasure & Sanders County FSA office is among the six (6) FSA offices slated for closure in Montana; and

WHEREAS, the conservation districts join Treasure & Sanders County Conservation District (TCCD) in the belief that closure of this office would disrupt the triangular working unit of FSA/NRCS/Conservation District and make each less effective in meeting the needs of the producers; and

WHEREAS, the conservation districts are committed to meeting the needs of the rural communities as well as the needs of the agricultural producers; and

WHEREAS, the conservation districts see the closure of the Treasure & Sanders County FSA office as an economic blow to the community involved as well as to the producers; and

WHEREAS, the conservation districts realize that the rural communities of Montana still have service needs and believe that budget cuts, if needed, be made elsewhere;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Montana Association of Conservation Districts (MACD) engage the assistance of the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) and actively join in the effort to keep the Treasure & Sanders County FSA office open for service to the producers and to the community.
