Alachua County Environmental Protection Advisory Committee Vacancies

The Alachua County Commission seeks applications to fill openings on the Environmental Protection Advisory Committee (EPAC). EPAC currently meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m., at the Environmental Protection Department Conference Room A, located in the Seagle Building (408 W.

EPAC provides an opportunity for citizen involvement in environmental issues and concerns affecting residents of Alachua County. It advises the County Commission on appropriate measures to safeguard air, water, and natural resources and on the responsible management of public lands and natural resources. Terms are for three years unless a person is appointed to fill a partial term. EPAC currently has six at-large positions that will need to be filled starting in July. The County Commission will likely select new members at their first regular meeting in July.
