Applicants Sought for Town Advisory Boards, Citizens Advisory Councils

Clark County is currently accepting applications from residents of unincorporated towns who are interested in serving on their local advisory board for the next two years.

Applicants must be eligible to vote, live within the area encompassed by the Town Advisory Board (TAB) or Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) they are applying for, and attend annual training.

The areas with a Town Advisory Board (TAB) are Bunkerville, Enterprise, Indian Springs, Moapa, Mt. Charleston, Paradise, Searchlight, Spring Valley, Sunrise Manor, Whitney and Winchester. The areas with a Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) are Goodsprings, Lone Mountain, Lower Kyle Canyon, Mountain Springs, Red Rock and Sandy Valley.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Nov. 12 and are available through the County website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov and through the Administrative Services Department, which can be reached at (702) 455-3530 or by email at AdministrativeServices@ClarkCountyNV.gov. TAB and CAC secretaries will also have applications available.

The County Commission appoints the members of the volunteer boards and councils to two-year terms. The next terms will begin Jan. 5, 2021. All appointees must attend a training program on Jan. 9, 2021.

The TABs and CACs serve an important advisory and liaison function relaying concerns and other important information between unincorporated towns and the County government. The boards and councils hold public meetings at least once a month to discuss and make recommendations on long-term planning, zoning changes, public works projects, County programs and ordinances that may affect their town.
