Three advisory boards seek volunteer members

January 19, 1994|By Staff Report

County residents are needed to serve voluntary posts on three citizen advisory boards: the Adult Public Guardianship Board, the Social Services Board and the Animal Matters Hearing Board.

Posts on two of the boards have specific occupational requirements. The Adult Public Guardianship Board requires that members works for a social services organization. The Animal Matters Hearing Board post requires a licensed veterinarian practicing in the county.

Members of the boards are appointed by the county executive and confirmed by the County Council. Financial disclosure is not required.

Applications should be sent by Jan. 31 to County Executive Charles I. Ecker, in care of Gail Bates, Executive Office, 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City, Md. 21043. A resume and letter of interest should be included.

The nine-member Adult Public Guardianship Board ensures that people who have disabilities and are under county guardianship are not neglected or mistreated. The board meets four times a year, and members serve three-year terms.

The Animal Matters Hearing Board reviews the annual budget of the animal control facility and makes recommendations on the center's operation.

It also serves as the appeals board for citizens objecting to citations received for violations of Howard County's animal control laws. The seven-member board meets one evening per month, and members serve five-year terms.

The Social Services Board advises the Department of Social Services on the application and formulation of state policies, procedures and programs as they apply to the delivery of social services in Howard County. Members are appointed for three years. The board meets one morning per month.
