El Dorado public board looks for new member

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The El Dorado Local Agency Formation Commission is looking to appoint someone to represent the interests of the citizens and residents of El Dorado County to the board.

LAFCO seeks to ensure the logical formation and determination of the local government agency boundaries, which affect growth and development patterns, delivery of urban services, and agricultural and open space lands within El Dorado County.

The Commission typically meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m., with the exception of the months of November and December. Because of the holidays, a combined meeting is typically held on the second Wednesday of December.

This new member will serve a four-year term from May 2010 to May 2010.

The public member is a full voting member of the commission and is expected to fully participate in the discussions and deliberations at LAFCO meetings. The public member may also take part in other LAFCO duties and training sessions.

Applicants must be a resident and a registered voter in El Dorado County and cannot be a city, district or County official of any public agency within El Dorado County. Those seated on LAFCO are subject to the fair political practices commission and must file an annual conflict of interest statement.
