Clackamas County Commissioners are seeking interested residents to serve on county Advisory Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These ABCs offer residents the opportunity to become very involved in specific activities and the goals of Clackamas County.

New ABC openings from the past week include:

  • OSU Extension-Clackamas and 4-H Budget Committee: This committee is seeking three resident(s) members to serve on a budget committee with a two year term for the Clackamas County Extension and 4-H Service District. The district was formed by voters in 2008 to provide annual property tax funding for local Oregon State University Extension and 4-H programs in Clackamas County.

    The budget committee meets in Jan, February, March, April and May in preparation for a public hearing for the Extension and 4-H Service District to be held in late May with the County Board of Commissioners. Proposed budget documents will be ready for review by April, 2022. Any resident residing within the district boundaries (all of Clackamas County except Johnson City) is invited to submit an application to serve on the Extension and 4-H Service District budget committee. The terms are three years as of the date the Commissioners approve and appoint the individual.

    The application deadline is March 16. For more information, contact Leah Sundquist, OSU Extension County Liaison, at leah.sundquist@oregonstate.edu or call 503-655-8631.
