Potential federal decision makers can apply now

The committee established to provide advice to federal decision makers about environmental issues at Lake Tahoe is accepting nominations for new people to serve as the local government and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency members.

Kerry Miller, former South Lake Tahoe city manager, and Jim Baetge, who plans to resign from his post as executive director of TRPA next month, previously held those positions.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman created the public citizens advisory body to address protection of the environmental and economic health of the Lake Tahoe region.

The board – commonly referred to as the FACA committee because it is made possible by the Federal Advisory Committee Act – is to represent Tahoe with the federal government.

Nominations should describe and document the proposed member’s qualifications for the position and be sent with an application form to FACA nominations, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, 870 Emerald Bay Road, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.

Information: (530) 573-2642.
