New ABC openings from the past week include:

Clackamas County Development Agency Budget Committee

This committee is seeking two volunteer members to serve on the ten-member budget committee. Commissioners will appoint two persons to a three-year term, to serve with them to set the Development Agency's annual budget. The Development Agency undertakes projects in its urban renewal districts which are located in various areas throughout the County. The districts have been established to help improve and revitalize areas that have deteriorated, are unsafe and/or that show signs of economic or physical conditions that are detrimental to the community as a whole.

Anyone interested in applying for the positions must be a County resident, but cannot live within a city that has an urban renewal district. In Clackamas County, cities with urban renewal districts are Oregon City, Gladstone, Lake Oswego, Wilsonville, Sandy, Canby, Portland and Tualatin. The Committee generally meets twice a year - once in May and once in June.

The deadline for applications is March 21. For more information, media may contact David Queener, Clackamas County Development Agency, at 503 742-4322 or

Solid Waste Advisory Commission

This Commission has one vacancy carrying a 4 year term. Members make recommendations to commissioners after reviewing rate changes, monitoring franchise agreements, and reviewing changes in legislation affecting solid waste management and recycling.

Members are sought from all over the County to represent all demographics and areas.
