Town officials seek volunteers to serve on committees
The Town needs to fill seats on two committees
One vacancy exists for a Jamestown alternate representative on the subcommittee for the state Coastal Resource Management Council. The subcommittee is appointed by the commissioner of the coastal council only when he or she makes a finding that the hearing officers of the Coastal Resource Management Council are unable to hear a matter in a timely fashion. The subcommittee will then act as hearing officers in any contested case coming before the council. The Jamestown representative would then serve as an additional member of the subcommittee only in contested cases affecting the coastal community of Jamestown.
Four vacancies exist on the newly established Jamestown Wildlife Committee, calling for three citizens-at-large and one member representing the hunting/ fishing/wildlife management community.
The Wildlife Committee will investigate, review, and report on the impacts of wildlife on the health, welfare, and safety of Jamestown residents to the Town Council and provide recommendations to the council regarding the management of wildlife issues.
The committee will serve a one-year term, at which time the committee will be reviewed and renewed by the Town Council. If necessary, members will be appointed with staggered terms. The committee’s first charge is to provide the Town Council with recommendations regarding the management of the island’s deer population.
Applicants must be registered voters in Jamestown to qualify for appointment. Anyone who wants to serve on one of these committees should submit an application by Sept. 16 to the Town Clerk, 93 Narragansett Ave, Jamestown, RI 02835.
Applications can be found on the Internet at www.jamestownri. net, at the Jamestown library, 26 North Road, or at the Town Clerk’s Office.
