Battle Ground City Council Member Troy McCoy has been selected to serve as a member of the Lower Columbia River Fish Recovery Board (LCFRB).
The 15-member board includes representatives from local governments, the state legislature, the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, hydropower operators, environmental landowner interests, and the public.
The LCFRB works with a diverse group of partners to coordinate and implement plans to restore and manage our water to improve the salmon, steelhead, and bull trout population for the future.
“As a resident of the Pacific Northwest for most of my life I have had the privilege of enjoying the many amenities our region has to offer.” Said Councilmember McCoy. “I am excited about the prospect of helping realize this board’s goals of improving the local fish population while, at the same time, furthering the city’s vision plan.”
The LCFRB area encompasses five counties, including Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis, Skamania, and Wahkiakum. Councilmember McCoy will serve as the Southwest Cities Representative.
