The Gloucester County Board of Supervisors is seeking interested residents to serve on two county committees—the Utilities Advisory Committee and the Telecommunications Committee.

The board is seeking residents from the Ware and York magisterial districts to serve on the Utilities Advisory Committee. This committee advises and suggests policies and concerns related to all aspects of public water and sewer services within the county. The committee meets every other month (January, March, May, July, September, and November) at 7 p.m.

The board is also seeking several residents to serve on the county’s Telecommunications Committee. This committee, which serves in an advisory capacity to county administration, works with staff to advise on issues related to cable services, telecommunications, broadband (wireline and wireless), local telecommunication infrastructure (towers, mini cells, etc.); and help promote local government and school programming on the public access channels.

Appointments for the Telecommunications Committee are initially for a one-year term with reappointments considered for one or two-year terms. Regular meetings (at least quarterly) will be scheduled in advance to facilitate active and regular participation.

Those interested in being considered for either of these committees are asked to complete a Volunteer Board Bank interest form. These can be found online at www.gloucesterva.info (under “Online Services” then select “Volunteer Board Bank Registration”) or by contacting the Department of Community Engagement at 804-693-5730.

When completing the form, citizens interested in serving on the Telecommunications Committee are asked to indicate their relative experience and expertise in telecommunications or business.
