Responsibilities
The Agriculture Division is responsible for:
  • Implementing farm conservation practices that keep soil in the fields and out of waterways. We co-manage the Blue Creek Conservation Area with the Toledo Area Metroparks to demonstrate these practices. We rent conservation tillage equipment to local farmers.
  • Assist with drainage and environmentally sound practices for water management.
