Council resource toolbox

The council resource toolbox is designed to assist council members and officers to best carry out their office duties and serve the constituents that they represent.

County extension council

The county extension council, comprised of 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 the county educational program
  • Manage finances of local extension operations
  • Provide personnel to carry out extension activities
  • Elect and organize the local extension council

The Howard County Extension Council meets at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. There are no meetings in July or December. Meetings are held at the Howard County Extension Office in Fayette, MO. The public is invited to attend. Council meeting agendas and minutes are found on the "County council information" page.
