Placer County Seeks to Fill Advisory Council Seats
Placer County is accepting applications from community members interested in serving on the Meadow Vista or Weimar-Applegate-Colfax Municipal Advisory Council.
Both advisory bodies have one prospective vacancy. The Board of Supervisors has not set a deadline for filling the positions, but hopes to do so soon. Fifth District Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery will review applications and recommend candidates for approval by the full board.
Placer County has 14 municipal advisory councils that advise the Board of Supervisors on issues of public interest in unincorporated areas. Commonly known as MACs, the advisory 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 each MAC must reside, own property, or own or manage businesses within the MAC boundaries.
The five-member Meadow Vista MAC normally meets at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at Placer Hills School, 16801 Placer Hills Road.
Commonly known as the WAC MAC, the Weimar-Applegate-Colfax MAC has seven members and generally meets at 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in the Colfax City Hall, 33 South Main St.
The WAC MAC represents Weimar, Applegate and unincorporated areas around Colfax.
