Mesa County boards have 2 openings
Mesa County aims to fill two positions on two influential local bodies — one on the Grand Junction Airport Authority and one on the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Council.
A position on the Airport Authority board, which sets policy and oversees operations at Grand Junction Regional Airport, will be vacated in April with Tom LeCroix’s ending term. Members ensure compliance with state bylaws and FAA regulations.
It meets monthly, with other committee meetings as needed. Terms are for four years.
LaCroix’s seat is one of three directly appointed by Mesa County commissioners. Three more are named by the City Council, and the seventh position is an at-large seat intended to be named by both entities.
March 15 is the Airport Authority application deadline.
The EMS Council advises the county commissioners on matters related to emergency medical services, with a goal of improving EMS across the county.
The available position is Citizen Representative, one of 11 seats that commissioners name to the group. It is the least specific of all, so people with a wide range of backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
The council also meets once a month, and terms are for three years. The deadline is March 29.
