Mayor LeRoy Goodman announced at the December 2nd Council meeting that Washoe County's East Truckee Canyon Citizen Advisory Board is looking for a representative from the City of Fernley to fill an ex-officio vacancy on the board. This is a volunteer position.
Washoe County’s Citizen Advisory Boards (CABs) meet a dual set of needs. They help the Washoe County Commissioners become more aware of concerns in the community so they can better address the issues in the best interest of the communities. CABs also address the need for public awareness. Members on CABs are selected with the intent to provide representation, to the extent reasonably possible, from a broad cross-section of the represented community(ies). The idea is to ensure that all major viewpoints are examined, and that any faction or special interest group does not dominate the Citizen Advisory Board.
Meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday bimonthly (January, March, May, July, September and November) at 7:00 p.m. at the Stampmill Neighborhood Fire Station #25, 400 Stampmill Dr., Wadsworth, Nevada.
The City of Fernley City Council will appoint a citizen to serve as its ex-officio representative on the East Truckee Canyon Citizen Advisory Board. After the appointment has been affirmed by the Washoe County Commission, the ex-officio member will be asked to complete an application for membership on the CAB in order to gather member information for publication on the CAB roster. The ex-officio member will serve until a different representative is approved by the City of Fernley. All newly appointed CAB members are required to complete a mandatory New Member Orientation training session within six month’s of their appointment.
