Extension to Host Public Meeting in Jersey County - Seeks Input for Programs

The University of Illinois Extension Unit 18 staff are seeking input from community leaders and residents at an upcoming public meeting. The Extension will be hosting a public meeting in each of the four counties covered by the Unit to share programming ideas and look for collaboration opportunities for development of new educational programs. The meeting for Jersey County will be held on February 13 at the Extension office located at 201 W. Exchange Street – Suite A in Jerseyville.


The meeting will begin with a brief presentation by Unit staff on programs and services the Extension is currently offering. The staff will then seek input from the attendees as to what gaps may exist and what new educational programs or services should be offered. This meeting will help the Unit determine what additional programs are needed and how best to serve the region going forward. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., with the public meeting starting at 12:00 p.m.
