Hillsborough County Commissioners are seeking residents to serve on several County citizen advisory boards and councils.
Residents interested in seeking appointment must be registered voters in Hillsborough County. These are voluntary positions, and members serve without compensation. Applicants may apply to more than one board, but may only serve on one board at a time. All members must sign a code of conduct.
The deadline for applying is Dec. 6, 2012. Appointments will be scheduled for a meeting of the Board of County Commissioners in January 2013.
An application is available in the Commissioners’ reception area on the second floor of County Center, 601 E. Kennedy Blvd. in downtown Tampa; by calling the Boards and Councils Coordinator at 813-272-5826; or on the County’s website at: www.hillsboroughcounty.org. Click on the “Government” link on the top of the page, then the “Boards and Committees” sublink.
The "Application Questionnaire For County Appointments" is in the middle of the page. The form can be filled out and printed, and then scanned and emailed, faxed, hand-delivered or mailed.
If you apply to a board that requires a background check, you must also submit a Background Investigation Disclosure and Authorization Form, which also is available on the website. Forms must be signed and dated. Additional directions for submission are listed on the forms.
