The Placer County Board of Supervisors is looking for people interested in serving on the Sheridan Municipal Advisory Council.
The five-member advisory council currently has one vacancy. Sheridan area residents interested in filling the vacancy are invited to fill out applications for board review.
No deadline has been set for submitting applications, but supervisors hope to fill the vacancy soon.
Commonly known as MACs, the county’s 13 advisory councils advise the Board of Supervisors on issues of public interest in unincorporated areas. The councils are charged with gathering public comment on a range of topics, including land use, public works, recreation, law enforcement and public health and safety.
Members of the Sheridan MAC are volunteers who serve four-year terms. Each member must reside within the boundaries of the area served by the MAC.
The MAC’s service area generally is bounded by Waltz Road on the south, the Sutter County line on the west, and Bear River on the north. On the east, the boundary is a north-south line that coincides with a stretch of Karchner Road that runs north-south.
The Sheridan MAC generally meets at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month in Stewart Hall, 6005 Camp Far West Road.
