Farm Ser­vice Agency con­sol­i­dated

The Covington News - - Agriculture & Outdoors -

The Greene County Farm Ser­vice Agency has been con­sol­i­dated with the Morgan/Jasper/ New­ton County Of­fice lo­cated in Madi­son. This change will re­quire the re­draw­ing of Lo­cal Ad­min­is­tra­tive Area bound­aries. The pro­posed new LAAs will hve one LAA in New­ton, one LAA in Jasper, one LAA in Greene and two LAAs in Morgan. Morgan County will be di­vided based on a bound­ary that will be I-20 at the Wal­ton County line con­tin­u­ing east to Brown­wood Road, north to U.S. High­way 278 and fol­low­ing High­way 278 East to the Greene County Line. The area north of this line will be LAA3 and the area south of the line will be LAA-2.

The re­draw­ing of th­ese LAA bound­aries will as­sist in en­sur­ing the fair rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the so­cially dis­ad­van­taged in the area and en­sure that all pro­duc­ers have an eq­ui­table op­por­tu­nity for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the county FSA com­mit­tee elec­tions.

The pro­posed changes will be in ef­fect to the elec­tion that will be held this De­cem­ber.

Pro­duc­ers who are in­ter­ested in com­ment­ing on the pro­posed changes should con­tact the Morgan/Jasper/New­ton/Green County FSA Of­fice, 205 East Jef­fer­son St., Madi­son.
