Governor Laura Kelly appointed Lynn Goossen, Colby, to the Kansas Water Authority.

The water authority advises the governor, the Legislature and the director of the Kansas Water Office (KWO) on water policy issues — including the approval of the Kansas Water Plan and revisions, federal contracts, administration regulations and legislation proposed by the KWO.

“The water authority relies on members with a strong knowledge of water-related issues in Kansas,” Kelly said. “Lynn’s career and knowledge of agriculture and irrigation make him an ideal appointee for the position.”

Since 1983, Goossen has been the owner and operator of Goossen Farms Inc., where he oversees the production of a variety of irrigated and dryland crops. Goossen also served on the Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission, the Thomas County Farm Bureau Board of Directors and the State Resolutions Committee of the State of Kansas Farm Bureau.
