A nine-member citizen advisory Watershed Planning Commission (WPC) consists of eight members from Dakota County and one from Scott County. The WPC guides implementation of the watershed plan, annual work plans, and budget through recommendation to the VRWJPB.
The current Watershed Planning Commissioners are: Tony Wotzka, Mark Henry, Ken Betzold, Chuck Clanton, Carolyn Miller, Josh Borton and Steve Hamrick. Two Dakota County seats are vacant.
Apply to be a Watershed Planning Commissioner by completing an application form for advisory groups in the county where you live: Scott County or Dakota County.
The WPC typically meets on the second Wednesday of each month (except November), at 3:30 p.m. in Conference Room A at the Dakota County Extension and Conservation Center in Farmington. During the COVID-19 pandemic, following CDC and MDH guidance, meetings are held virtually on Zoom and/or telephone. See the calendar or agenda for a link to each meeting.
