The interim county manager is seeking applicants to fill two positions on the volunteer Community Action Advisory Board.
Positions include a low-income representative and a community representative from the county’s fourth district, encompassing Camas, Washougal, Brush Prairie, Battle Ground, Yacolt and unincorporated areas in east Clark County. See the county district map.
Term periods are three years, ending Dec. 31, 2023. Incumbents have the opportunity for re-appointment to two additional three-year terms.
Low-income representatives are defined as any person who is nominated by a group who is low-income such as tenants of a low-income housing complex or an agency that predominantly serves people who are low-income such as the Council for the Homeless, Share, NAMI, etc.
