Manatee accepting applications for vacancies on MPO Citizen Advisory Committee

MANATEE COUNTY, FL (January 7, 2015) – Manatee County has two openings for the Citizen Advisory Committee that makes recommendations to the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Board on regional transportation issues.

The Committee (CAC) assists the Metropolitan Planning Organization by providing citizens’ views, attitudes and input to the transportation planning process. CAC members represent a cross section of the citizens of Sarasota and Manatee counties including the cities within the counties. CAC representatives are recommended for appointment by their respective units of local government and are appointed by the MPO Board.

There is one vacancy for an at-large representative from Manatee County, and one vacancy for an at-large, disabled representative. Applications may be found online at http://www.mymanatee.org/home/government/board-of-commissioners/advisory-boards.html

The group meets at 5 p.m. on the first Thursday of months in which an MPO meeting is scheduled, with some CAC meetings scheduled on an alternate Thursday due to holidays. The committee meets in the main conference room at the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization Office at 7632 15th St E, Sarasota FL 34243.
