Jun. 19, 2014 @ 05:59 PM

Filings for the Tri-County’s water and soil conservation districts’ supervisors have been low so far.

No filings have been reported to the board of elections in Granville and Warren County.

One has been reported in Vance County.

Incumbent Betty Hamm applied to fill one of the two available seats June 17.

She said she applied because she felt the obligation.

“I been in it some 20 years,” she said.

Incumbent Tommy Farmer has not yet filed.

Each county started taking applications June 12 and will close the process July 7.

The Soil and Water Conservation District supervisors are in charge of finding and providing assistance for farmers, building water ways and planting trees.

Filing is open each weekday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
