Do you have a passion for service and time to serve? If so, Douglas County is actively seeking volunteers to fill four vacancies: the District III vacancy on the County’s Cultural Council, Audit, and Open Space Advisory Committees, as well as the one at-large vacancy on the Open Space Advisory Committee for the professional land planner position.
The nine-member Douglas County Cultural Council serves the citizenry of Douglas County by annually reviewing applications from eligible Tier III SCFD organizations requesting Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) funds. The Council also oversees the County’s public art program, Art Encounters and works to help identify opportunities to strengthen the cultural vitality of Douglas County. The successful applicant must be available to meet on the second Tuesday evening of each month and be willing to commit to a three-year term.
Audit Committee members review the County’s financial statements and provide feedback on financial reporting and the annual audit, helping to strengthen the accountability, integrity and transparency in Douglas County. Financial experience will not be required from the prospective regular members however it is preferred as the level of complexity associated with governmental financial transactions is high. Meetings are held quarterly or on an as-needed basis.
The nine-member Open Space Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on the disbursement of funds from the Open Space, Trails and Parks Fund. Members are appointed to three-year terms and are required to attend evening meetings the first Thursday of the month.
Applications for all vacancies will be accepted through May 24. Interested candidates may complete an online application or print and mail the completed application to Douglas County Commissioners’ Office, 100 Third St., Castle Rock, CO 80104.
