County Seeks to Fill Vacancy for Delta Vector Control District

The Tulare County Board of Supervisors is seeking a Tulare County resident to serve on the Delta Vector Control District Board of Trustees as an at-large member.

The Delta Vector Control District is the authority for vector control and vector-borne disease prevention in the northern portion of Tulare County. The board consists of seven members, five from the north county incorporated cities, and two County at-large members.

Anyone interested in serving on the Delta Vector Control District Board must qualify under existing Mosquito Abatement and Vector Control District Law, which includes the following:

* Each person appointed by a Board of Supervisors to be a member of a board of trustees shall be a voter in that county and a resident of that portion of the county that is within the district.

* Persons appointed to Board of Trustees have experience, training, and education in fields that will assist in the governance of the districts.

* All trustees shall exercise their independent judgment on behalf of the interests of the residents, property owners, and the public as a whole in furthering the purposes and intent of this chapter. The
trustees shall represent the interests of the public as a whole and not solely the interests of the board of supervisors or the city council that appointed them.

The county is looking to fill a County at-large vacancy to fill the unexpired term ending December 31, 2016. At the end of the term, a reappointment can be made for two more years. Board members receive a stipend of $50 per month in lieu of expenses. Meetings occur on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm at the District office.

Applications are available at under Boards, Commissions and Committees, Special District Application or contact Candice Ruby at the Clerk of the Board’s office at (559)
