Board Vacancy Notice

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Notice is hereby given of a vacancy on the Middle Republican Natural Resources District Board of Directors.  Pursuant to N.R.S. §2-3215, the Board of Directors of a Natural Resources District shall provide notice to the public in the event of a vacancy by publishing in a newspaper of general circulation within the district or by posting in three public places in the district. Effective July 10, 2018, the Middle Republican Natural Resources District (MRNRD) accepted the resignation of Buck Haag, who was a Board of Director for the MRNRD. Buck Haag’s position was a 4-year term beginning in 2016 for Subdistrict 6. Since Buck Haag’s position was a 4-year term in 2016 for Subdistrict 6, and he resigned prior to August 1 of the second year of the unexpired term, he falls under the criteria for N.R.S. §2-3215(3)(a). Someone will need to be appointed to fill the remainder of the term, which will have a shortened term length expiring on January 3, 2019. N.R.S. §2-3215 provides that a board vacancy shall be filled by the MRNRD Board of Directors. The person appointed by the board shall have the same qualifications as the person he or she succeeds. Such appointment must be in writing and filed with the Secretary of State. The MRNRD Board of Directors need to appoint someone to fill this vacancy by majority vote for this shortened term length that expires on January 3, 2019. This vacant position will then go on the November 6, 2018 ballot. The MRNRD Board of Directors is accepting letters of interest for appointment to the Board of Directors for this shortened term length. Please contact Jack Russell, MRNRD General Manager, at 308-367-4281 if there are questions about this vacancy.
