Soil Conservation District Supervisors: Consist of
five members, four of whom serve four-year
terms. The county governing body appoints one
member who serves at the pleasure of that body.
In charter government counties, the County Exec-
utive appoints that member with County Council
approval. The State Soil Conservation Committee
appoints the remaining four members from res-
idents of the District. One is chosen from a list
submitted by the county Farm Bureau, one from a
list submitted by the county Extension Service,
and two represent the District at large. The Su-
pervisors designate the chairperson and other of-
ficers annually (Code Agriculture Article, sees.
8-301 through 8-303).
