SWCD cuts back as grants dry up
Employee hours are being cut to four days a week at the Wadena Soil and Water Conservation District due to a lack of grants and a cutback in government support.
Malinda Dexter, manager and weed inspector, said the board of supervisors made the decision Feb. 22 because the SWCD's budget is not in good condition.
"Without grant funding we're going to be considerably short," she said. "So this was our choice."
