There is currently one vacancy on the Commission on Aging. The Commission plays a very important advisory role in the provision of services to El Dorado County seniors, acting in an advisory capacity to both the Area Agency on Aging and the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors, on matters concerning senior residents. The commission focuses its efforts on such issues as the following:
• Development of community centers in strategic areas of the county to ensure provision of accessible services to all senior residents
• Promotion of services that enable seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible
• Identification and prevention of elder abuse.
The commission strives to attain a balanced geographic representation. Applicants are being sought from all areas of the county, including South Lake Tahoe. Preference will be given to those applicants who are 60 years and older.
The deadline for submitting an application is May 10. For additional information, and/or to obtain a membership application, contact Janice Haney at 530-642-7276 or [email protected]
