Board of County Commissioners Creates Two New Advisory Committees

Post Date:01/22/2018 1:00 PM

Board of County Commissioners Creates Two New Advisory Committees 

At its Dec. 12, 2017, meeting the Board of County Commissioners (Board) voted to reestablish the County Government Productivity Committee with a renewed mission to make recommendations for cost-savings and efficiency measures.  

The Productivity Committee was originally established in 1991 to review the efficiency of county government under the jurisdiction of the Board.  The Committee was disbanded by the Board in November 2013, along with several other committees that the Board identified as no longer active or necessary.  

The newly reestablished Productivity Committee is seeking applications for seven open seats: five members shall represent each of the five commission districts, and two members shall be at-large members. Applicants for commission district seats must be nominated by the commissioner of the district they reside in. Applicants for at-large seats may be nominated by any commissioner. Members must have special expertise and experience related to managing large organizations, and be balanced in representing the views of the community.

This action follows on the heels of Board action taken at its November 14 meeting to establish the Collier County Senior Advisory Committee. 

The purpose of the Senior Advisory Committee is to assist the Board in compiling and identifying issues and relevant best practices concerning senior citizens in Collier County.

The newly formed Senior Advisory Committee is seeking applications for nine open seats: five members shall represent each of the five commission districts, and four members shall be at-large members. Applicants for commission district seats must be nominated by the commissioner of the district they reside in. Applicants for at-large seats may be nominated by any commissioner. All members must be 62 years of age or older. 

Residents interested in applying for positions on the two new advisory committees may obtain an application by calling (239) 252-8400, or by downloading an application from the county’s website at Online Advisory Board Application | Collier County, FL

Media inquiries should be directed to Public Information Coordinator Margie Hapke at (239) 252-2679 or Margie.Hapke@colliercountyfl.gov.
