After many years in the works, a Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) for the Springs — a panel that makes formal recommendations for the area to the County Board of Supervisors — is nearing its launch.
“I’m excited that we are nearing the finish line on this,” Supervisor Susan Gorin said. “Anyone with a strong interest in the Springs community and a proven track record of community organization is encouraged to apply.”
Members of the seven-member panel will not be elected, but rather selected from the community by Gorin, with community input.
There will be seven members total—two residents of Boyes Hot Springs, one resident from El Verano, one resident from Agua Caliente/Fetters Hot Springs, one member of the Sonoma Valley Unified School District, one member of the Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission, and one owner of a Springs area business.
The application and information is available at http://sonomacounty.ca.gov/Springs-Municipal-Advisory-Council/ The deadline for applications is February 9.
