Missouri’s First Extension Council Business Plan on Agenda for Oct. 29 Greene County Extension Council Meeting

Members of the Greene County Extension Council will conduct their regular monthly public meeting starting at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29 in the large classroom at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 South Scenic Avenue, Springfield, Mo. The Botanical Center is home to the Greene County Extension Center.

The full agenda for the meeting, as well as minutes from the previous month’s meeting, can be found online at under the “plans and reports” tab.

This month’s meeting includes a discussion and vote on a business plan for the Greene County Extension Council. This is the first business plan in the state of Missouri for an elected extension council and it is available for review on the Greene County Extension website.

“The Greene County Extension Council is an elected governing body established in Missouri state law as a function of county government,” said Carl Allison, chair of the Greene County Extension Council. “This business plan is in addition to our existing bylaws and policies and looks at a business direction for the council that goes beyond the stream of revenue received from the county commission.”

At this month’s meeting, council members will also consider changes to soil test prices and the monthly “Reaching Out Report” sent to area office holders.

The county extension council, comprised of both elected and appointed citizens, is a full partner with Missouri's land-grant universities to deliver high-quality education and research-based information that helps people solve real-world problems and take advantage of opportunities.

Council members work with extension specialists to provide county educational programs, manage finances of local extension operations, provide personnel to carry out extension activities, and elect and organize the local extension council
