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

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.

The Platte County Extension Council meets at 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of each month at the Platte County Resource Center. The public is invited. We recommend calling ahead to confirm time and location.
