Commissioner seeks basin committee post

Michael Schneider

Douglas Commissioners will be asked to support Lake Tahoe Commissioner Don Miner’s bid to sit on the Basin Federal Advisory Committee.

The committee was created by an order from President Clinton after he visited the Tahoe Basin last July. It will advise the Federal Interagency Partnership of local interests before the partnership implements policies and report to Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman.

The committee is to be comprised of no more than 20 members representing a broad array of interests in the Lake Tahoe region, according to Robert Joslin, acting associate chief of the Department of Agriculture.

Nominations for membership on the committee, which is chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, should be submitted by letter with the candidate’s name, address, telephone number and fax number to FACA Nominations, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, 870 Emerald Bay Road, South Lake Tahoe, Calif. 96150.

For further information, contact Linda Massey, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit public affairs officer, at 573-2688.

Who: Douglas County Commission

When: Thursday, 1 p.m.

Where: Valley Administration Building, 1616 Eighth Street, Minden
