County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) of Burtonsville is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on the East County Citizens Advisory Board, an 18-member board that serves as a liaison between the East County community and the county executive, county council and county government departments by identifying community concerns and recommending solutions.
The group reviews and comments on the county’s capital and operating budgets and master plans, assists with strategies to tailor services to regional needs, conducts workshops and forums and acts on other ad hoc issues.
The board represents more than 110,000 residents in the Burtonsville, Fairland, White Oak, Cloverly and Colesville areas of Montgomery County. Members serve three-year terms without compensation but are eligible for travel and dependent care reimbursement for meetings attended, which are usually held the first Wednesday evening of each month, with the exception of August at the Eastern Montgomery Regional Services Center.
Applications are due Dec. 7 and can be sent to Leggett at 101 Monroe St., second floor, Rockville, Md. 20850 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
