Island County is looking for applicants to fill three vacated positions on the Noxious Weed Control Board.
The Noxious Weed Control Board consists of five voting members, one from each of five geographical areas that best represent the county’s interests. At least four of the voting members need to be engaged in the primary production of agricultural products. Board members do not receive a salary but are compensated for actual and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of their official duties.
Duties as a member of the board include attending quarterly meetings, regulating the duties and direction of the weed control coordinator’s position and making decisions regarding noxious weed control efforts in Island County. All persons interested in applying should make a written application that includes the signature of at least 10 registered voters residing in the section supporting the nomination.
There are openings for District IV (Freeland south to the end of Whidbey), and District II (the southern city limits of Oak Harbor along Fort Nugent Road to Race Road south of Coupeville).
