County Seeks Applicants for UpCounty Citizens Advisory Board

June 13, 2018

The UpCounty needs you. County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill seven vacancies on the Upcounty Citizens Advisory Board. Two incumbents are eligible to apply for reappointment.

   The Upcounty Citizens Advisory Board represents approximately 300,000 residents in the area north of Shady Grove Road, that includes the communities of Barnesville, Beallsville, Boyds, Clarksburg, Comus, Damascus, Darnestown, Dickerson, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Goshen, Laytonsville, Montgomery Village, North Potomac, Poolesville, Tobytown, and Washington Grove. Residents of Clarksburg, Darnestown, Dickerson, Poolesville, Tobytown, Barnesville, Beallsville, and Washington Grove, are particularly encouraged to apply.

   The deadline for application is June 22, 2018.

   The 20-member Board advises the County Executive, County Council, and the Regional Director of the Upcounty area on needs and priorities such as transportation, human services, the environment, land use, public safety, and other issues of local importance. It also reviews and comments on the County’s capital and operating budgets and master plans; assists with strategies to tailor services to regional needs; and conducts workshops and forums. Some members represent the Board on other committees.

   Members serve three-year terms without compensation but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. The full Board meets one Monday evening of each month and occasionally on Saturdays at the Upcounty Regional Services Center in Germantown. Members are also expected to serve on at least one subcommittee, which also meets each month on a Monday evening.

   Applicants of diverse backgrounds, professions, gender, geography, disability and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Members must complete training on the Maryland Open Meetings Act and basic parliamentary procedure. Leggett’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of those selected for appointment are made public as part of the confirmation process.

   To apply, go to the County’s website for Board, Committees, and Commissions.
