The Land Conservation & Forest Management Committee provides policy oversight to the Land Conservation & Forest Management Department. The mission of the Land Conservation and Forest Management Committee is to encourage “stewardship for sustainability”. The composition, powers and duties of the committee are set forth in Wis. Stats. §§ 59.70(19), 92.06, 92.07, and 28.11. The committee consists of six members including five County Board Supervisors and one ASCS representative that are appointed for a two-year term. Two of the County Board Supervisor shall be members of the Agriculture & Extension Committee and one of the County Board Supervisors shall also be a member of the Planning and Zoning Committee. The Committee meets monthly.
PLEASE NOTE: The Chippewa County Code of Ordinances has been completely reviewed, amended and adopted in order to codify Resolution 39-11. That resolution adopted proposals to restructure the Chippewa County Committees, Boards and Commissions to accommodate the downsizing of the Chippewa County Board of Supervisors from 29 to 15 supervisors in April 2012.
The former Land, Forest & Parks Committee was eliminated and the responsibilities of that committee were transferred to the Planning and Zoning Committee, the Land Conservation & Forest Management Committee, and the Facilities & Parks Committee.
