OLYMPIA, WA – The Washington State Conservation Commission (SCC) has released the findings on which they based their decision to remove two members of the Thurston Conservation District board from office.
By statute, the Commission may only remove a conservation district board member for exhibiting neglect of duty or malfeasance in office. The Findings of Fact summarize the four charges where SCC members found sufficient evidence of this conduct.
Commission members made their decision to remove the board members during a hearing on February 20, 2019.
