The Placer County Board of Supervisors has approved a change in the boundary of the Meadow Vista Municipal Advisory Council to more accurately reflect the boundary used by the U.S. Postal Service. In October 2006, the Postal Service moved some addresses from Colfax to Meadow Vista. The Supervisors’ vote aligns those 2006 changes with the boundaries of the County’s Meadow Vista and Weimar/Applegate/Colfax Municipal Advisory Councils. Residents with addresses in Meadow Vista are now served by the Meadow Vista MAC and those with addresses in Colfax are part of the WACMAC. These boundary modifications will help avoid any confusion as to who is and is not eligible to serve on the Municipal Advisory Councils.
In another change affecting the Meadow Vista MAC, the Council, at its March 5, 2009 meeting, approved a change to the day of its monthly meeting. The meetings will now be the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held in the same location as done previously, Placer Hills School, Room 22, 16801 Placer Hills Road, Meadow Vista.
The WACMAC also made a change to its regularly scheduled meeting. The Council meeting will remain on the third Wednesday of each month, but will start an hour earlier at 6 p.m. The meetings will remain at the Colfax Memorial Hall in Colfax. Both the MVMAC and the WACMAC are within District 5.
“Hopefully these changes will further the process of remaking the MACs as vibrant and useful contributors to our county governance,” said District 5 Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery.
The purpose of the county’s Municipal Advisory Councils is to advise the Board of Supervisors on matters of concern which relate to the area served by the Council. The Council advises the Board of Supervisors on matters specifically referred to it by the Board of Supervisors for review and recommendation. The councils are composed of seven members at-large who serve two-year terms.
