Jackson County BOC
Board Chair: Tom Crow firstname.lastname@example.org
District 1: Jim Hix email@example.com
District 2: Chas Hardy firstname.lastname@example.org
District 3: Ralph Richardson email@example.com
District 4: Marty Seagraves firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Board of Commissioners approved the creation of an Impact Fee Committee to aid the County as they research impact fees for residential developments. Unfortunately, the BOC refused to consider 3 citizens who volunteered for the committee. The Impact Fee Committee now has 7 members, all of which have a vested interest in residential development or County investments. These 7 were unanimously approved by the BOC.
Are you thinking about serving on a Board or Commission?
To be considered to a standing board or commission in which members are appointed by the BOC, there is a process where citizens can be considered for such established groups. On the county website there is a page called Boards & Commissions and on the top right hand corner is a “button” to click on which will direct you to a fillable form which gets submitted back to the Deputy Clerk. At that point, she will collect or accumulate those applications and when there is a vacancy she will add the application(s) to the BOC packets at the appropriate board meeting for their consideration. Often times the County gets inquiries about many different boards, and staff or commissioners usually point the person to the Deputy Clerk for assistance on how to fill out the application for consideration. This program is web based.
