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.
