County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill six vacancies on the Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC). Applicants and members of the SWAC should reflect broad geographic areas of the county, solid waste industry/recycling industry representatives, business users and the general public.
The 16-member SWAC provides advice to the County Council and the County Executive on all matters relating to solid waste/recycling management in the County, including reviewing and offering recommendations on the ten-year solid waste management plans, and evaluating the impact of the solid waste management program on citizens, institutions, business and industry. The Committee also recommends public education programs, as well as State and local legislation necessary to accomplish effective solid waste/recycling management.
Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. In 2013, nine full Committee meetings are scheduled. Meetings are held in Rockville, usually the first Tuesday evening of the month. Members are also expected to actively participate on one or more subcommittees.
Applicants of diverse backgrounds, professions, gender, geography, disability and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. An application, consisting of a brief cover letter and resume, should be sent by mail to County Executive Isiah Leggett, 101 Monroe Street, 2nd Floor, Rockville, MD 20850, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Home and employment addresses, as well as contact phone numbers and email addresses should be included. If appropriate, applicants should indicate the position for which they are applying. The deadline for application is August 7, 2013.
Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Leggett’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of those selected for appointment are made public as part of the confirmation process.
