WPVGA Supports Little Plover River Conservancy Project; Considers By-Laws Change to Allow Office Move

At its board meeting on December 23, 2014, the WPVGA board of directors passed two motions related to the support of a new project called the Little Plover River Conservancy Area.  This is a large and far-reaching project that involves working with the Wisconsin DNR, the Wisconsin DOT and the Village of Plover on developing 140 acres of land near the Little Plover River into a conservancy, along with creating an agricultural education center and a potential new home for the WPVGA office.

The following motions were unanimously approved by the WPVGA Board:

The WPVGA will support working with the Village of Plover and the DNR on the Little Plover River Conservancy Area Project.

The WPVGA Board will support modifying the WPVGA By-Laws to allow the main WPVGA office to be located in any potato growing region of Wisconsin.

The proposed By-Laws change will need to be voted on at the WPVGA Annual Meeting scheduled for February 5, 2015 at 1 p.m. at the Stevens Point Holiday Inn.  A majority vote by those members present and voting at the Annual Meeting would be needed to change the WPVGA By-Laws.

The WPVGA Finance and Administration Committee will continue to meet and look more closely at all aspects of this proposed project.
