To the voters of Williams County…Only a dollar a MONTH.
On Tuesday, May 7th, the Williams County Soil and water Conservation District is asking for your help in continuing the work of this vital agency. Budget cuts at the county level in the last few years have lead to the curtailing and in some cases, discontinuing, of many of the services that this agency has provided to Williams County for nearly 70 years.

The Williams County SWCD has worked with hundreds of county residents to develop wind breaks, stream buffers, tree seedlings and pond fish stocking over the years. Along with these programs, the agency helped sponsor the annual Maple Syrup Day, Arbor Day events and also provided thousands of seedlings that your children brought home from school. Some may very well be growing in your yard as you read this. We are asking for .40 of a mil which equates to just under a dollar a month for the average property. Less than a dollar a month. By voting yes on May 7th, you will make it possible to continue these services and others that have been drastically reduced as a result of the discontinuing of county funding. Additionally, a yes vote for this funding will make Williams County SWCD eligible for funding from the State of Ohio. Without local funding, there is no state funding.
Please vote Yes for Williams County SWCD on May 7th.
