Take your seat

The North Tahoe Public Utility District is seeking two adult and two youth volunteers for positions on the Recreation and Parks Commission.

While the commission is looking to fill all four spots, the two youth seats are the priority, said utility district Executive Assistant Pam Lefrancois.

“There have been youth openings for over a year now,” Lefrancois said. “It is important to have a youth voice on that commission.”

A liaison between the utility district board and the community, the commission is focused on the implementation and outreach for the new Friends of the Park Fund, a program that began in July and looks to raise money for a number of projects in the North Tahoe Regional Park.

The commission consists of five adult members and two student members, all residents of the district. Student members must be full-time 11th or 12th grade students in good standing. Those interested must fill out an application to be submitted to the utility district board of directors for consideration.

The commissioners will meet monthly for about two to three hours and are also asked for additional time commitments for special events.

“It is a great way to get involved in the community and find out what’s going on in the parks and recreation area of the North Tahoe PUD,” said Lefrancois.
