El Dorado County is accepting applications for its new Federal Coordination Advisory Committee.
Various provisions of federal law mandate that federal agencies “coordinate” certain activities with local agencies before making decisions which may impact local government. It is important that county government track and analyze federal decisions in order to timely invoke the right of coordination and participate in the decision-making process.
Members of the 14-person Coordination Advisory Committee will serve without compensation for staggered four-year terms. Volunteers from the following specialties are encouraged to apply: Residential home ownership within proximity of public lands; watershed management; wildlife biology; timber industry; hunting and fishing; farming; rock hounding or mining; grazing; off-highway vehicle interests; equestrian; forestry; law enforcement; rafting; skiing.
Applications are available on the Website: edcgov.us/bos or from the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors office. Applications must be submitted by Jan. 31.
