Volunteers needed to fill town panels

Town officials are looking for volunteers to serve on two commissions and one committee:

• One vacancy with a threeyear term exists on the Jamestown Traffic Commission. The purpose of this commission investigates parking and traffic issues, including but not limited to stop signs, speeding, and parking, and makes recommendations to the Town Council. Meetings are held when matters have been referred to the committee.

• Two vacancies having threeyear terms exist on the Jamestown Conservation Commission. The purpose of this commission is to promote and develop the natural resources, protect the watershed resources, and preserve natural aesthetic areas within the municipality. Meetings are conducted monthly on the second Tuesday of the month.

• Two vacancies with threeyear terms exist within the Water Resource Protection Committee. This committee is charged with the acquisition of open-space land or the development rights that protect or preserve the water resources of the town.

Applicants must be registered voters in Jamestown to be eligible for appointment. Anyone who wants to serve on one of these panels should send an application and a letter of interest and background by Tuesday, Dec. 27. to the Town Clerk, 93 Narragansett Ave., Jamestown, RI 02835.
