Announcement:

Erie SWCD will be holding a Special Board meeting on Monday, May 18, 2020 at 6:00 PM to conduct the business of the regular board meeting for May 2020. We will be meeting in the Room 118 of the Erie County Services Complex, 2900 Columbus Avenue, Sandusky.

Due to safety reasons caused by the COVID-19 virus, In-person meeting will be limited to board members and limited administrative staff.  To comply with state and local requirements, all in-person attendees should check their temperatures and are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering to protect themselves and those around them.  All surfaces within the meeting room will be properly cleaned before and after the meeting.

To comply with open meeting laws and rules:

  • Those wishing to attend the meeting, virtually, can utilize a call-in option through UberConference.
  • Toll Free call-in number can be provided by contacting the District office at (419) 626-5211 during normal business hours
  • If you choose to join by phone, we ask that participants keep phone muted except when participating in the meeting. This will eliminate background noise and interruptions during the meeting.

Meeting attendance will be taken for proper documentation of minutes.
