NRCS' Givens' duties broadening

From Craig Givens of Logan County Natural Resources and Conservation Service: Due to the lack of hiring approval and continued retirements within Kentucky NRCS, I have been given other duties to serve outside of Logan County effective starting tomorrow (April 10).  This will reduce the time that I will be available to assist customers in the Logan County. Please contact the office when you have needs and we will work to assist you as soon as possible. At this point, I am not sure how much time away from the county this will involve.  We are fortunate to have very good NRCS and Conservation District employees in Logan County and I’m confident they will continue to meet the needs of our customers.
