WYTHEVILLE, Va. – Members of the Wythe County Board of Supervisors are calling upon local residents to serve on a number of committees and boards.
County leaders say several vacancies exist on various committees and ask citizens who have interest and expertise to make application to assist in filling these gaps.
In addition to groups with vacancies, local officials say many previous appointees are nearing the end of their terms on a handful of committees; creating additional opportunities for other local residents to serve.
The Board of Supervisors appoint representatives to serve on the following committees and boards: Community Policy & Management Team, Emergency Planning Committee, Fire & Rescue Board of Directors, Industrial Development Authority – County & Towns, Mount Rogers Community Services Board, NR/MR Workforce Investment Board, Planning Commission, Recreation Commission, Smyth-Wythe Airport Commission, Social Services Board, SWVA Emergency Medical Services Council, Tourism Advisory Committee, Wall of Honor Committee, Wythe/Bland Joint Public Service Authority, Wythe/Grayson Regional Library Board and Wytheville Community College Board.
Residents interested in serving on any of the above mentioned committees or boards are encouraged to fill out a committee application, which is available at the county administrator’s office (340 S. Sixth St., Wytheville, VA). Though not all committees and boards presently have vacancies, filling out the application will give local residents an opportunity to express their interest should a future vacancy occur.
“Much of the groundwork of local government is performed by engaged citizens,” stated Wythe County Public Information Officer Jeremy Farley, who added, “These committees provide county residents with a very real opportunity to make a big difference in their communities.”
