Seven boards and commissions have openings

County residents interested in unique volunteer opportunities that include meeting new people, learning new things and contributing ideas that can strengthen the services provided by Weld County Government are encouraged to apply to one of seven volunteer advisory boards and commissions seeking new members.‚Äč

The Board of Public Health has one opening in Advisory Board District 1 — school districts RE-9,12 and 11J, which include the towns of Ault, New Raymer, Buckingham, Grover and Hereford. On the Board of Public Health, learn more about Health Department programs, health issues impacting Weld County, and conduct hearings to consider septage applications and on-site Wastewater Treatment System variances.

Those with construction experience are encouraged to apply to the Building Trades Advisory Committee, which currently has three openings. There is also an opening on the Weld County Building Code Board of Appeals, which helps interpret the Weld County Building Code by listening to and deciding upon appeals by building officials around the county. The board then makes its recommendation on those appeals to the county commissioners.

The Extension Advisory Council is seeking a crop sciences representative to provide feedback to assist in the planning and implementation of the crop sciences projects offered by the council.

The award-winning Workforce Development Board has three openings. Members are charged with identifying regional workforce needs, developing and implementing systems in response to those needs and providing overall direction for Employment Services of Weld County.

The Greeley Housing Authority has openings for two Weld County representatives. Members supervise the administration and financial polices of the housing authority, which provides housing assistance for many Weld County families.

Issues facing older Americans are discussed on the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) which has one opening. Members learn about several different programs offered to older Americans. They provide feedback on various issues facing older Americans including health care, transportation and housing needs and give ideas on how county services can best meet those needs.
