Placer County Seeking to Fill Seat on Sheridan Municipal Advisory Council

Published on January 24, 2014

Placer County is accepting applications from community members interested in filling a vacancy on the Sheridan Municipal Advisory Council.

The Placer County Board of Supervisors has not set a deadline for filling the vacant position, but hopes to do so soon. Second District Supervisor Robert M. Weygandt will review the applications and recommend a candidate for approval by the full board.

“Being a member of the advisory council is a great way to serve the Sheridan community,” Supervisor Weygandt said. “I pay close attention to what is said at meetings and the recommendations that emerge. At the same time, these meetings allow me to keep my district informed about what I’m doing on their behalf and what is happening throughout the county.”

 Commonly known as MACs, the county’s 14 municipal 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 must reside, own property, or own or manage businesses within the MAC’s boundaries. It generally meets at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month in Stewart Hall, 6005 Camp Far West Road.

More information and a map of the Sheridan MAC’s boundaries are on Supervisor Weygandt’s website.

For application forms, call the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors Office at 530-889-4020 or go to the County Application page.

Completed applications should be delivered to the Clerk of the Board’s Office in person or by mail. The office is located at 175 Fulweiler Ave. in Auburn and the mailing address is 175 Fulweiler Ave., Auburn, CA 95603. Applications may also be scanned and sent by email.
