District Manager Retires
Longtime District Manager Dominick Cassetta retired on August 24, 2012 after 38 years with the District. Nick was instrumental in administering one of the largest agricultural cost share programs in the State. During his time as manager, the District expanded into many natural resource conservation related programs. Education programs grew under Nick's watch, and the District contributed extensively to watershed management projects. Nick was a longtime member of the South Jersey RC&D Council, and the Atlantic County Board of Agriculture. He was also one of the founding members of the NJ Conservation District Employees Association. With the development of Atlantic City, and the surrounding municipalities, the District administered a rapidly growing 251 program overseeing construction related soil erosion and sediment control measures. Today the District's 251 program remains an integral part of the District's overall conservation programs. Good luck and enjoyment to Nick in his retirement. It is well deserved.
