County Fish and Game Commission has open seat

Published on July 07, 2016

With a significant amount of wild lands and rural settings, Placer County is full of wildlife. The Placer County Fish and Game Commission coordinates efforts in habitat improvements, public awareness and natural resources education on issues involving the county’s fish and wildlife. The commission currently has an opening for someone interested in these resources.

The seven-member commission has an opening for its Supervisorial District 3 seat. Only residents of District 3 - including North Auburn, Rocklin, Loomis, Penryn, Ophir and Newcastle - are eligible to apply for this vacancy. The commission serves in an advisory role to the county board of supervisors on all fish and wildlife issues in Placer County.

“The input provided to the Board of Supervisors from our committees and commissions informs decisions on issues that affect all of us in Placer County,” District 3 Supervisor Jim Holmes said. “I encourage anyone who lives in District 3 who is interested in the sound management of Placer County’s fish and wildlife resources to consider serving on this commission.”

The commission meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month in Auburn. The vacant seat is a four-year appointment. Commissioners receive a $30 per diem compensation. Anyone interested in helping shape policy surrounding wildlife in the county should complete an application and submit it to the Clerk of the Board, 175 Fulweiler Ave., Auburn, CA 95603.
