LAKE COUNTY, Calif. (April 18, 2018) – Jim Steele, District 3 Supervisor for the County of Lake, is pleased to announce that the three area town halls in his district now have websites. These websites can be found on the County of Lake’s webpage www.co.lake.ca.us under Government, Boards and Commissions.
The three area town halls in District 3 are Municipal Advisory Councils designed to increase resident participation in decisions affecting the community. The three town halls are:
East Region Town Hall (ERTH) – The Eastern Region of District 3 from Paradise Cove East to the County Line and north to the High Valley area.
Lucerne Area Town Hall (LATH) – Lucerne community growth boundary.
West Region Town Hall (WRTH) – The Western Region of District 3 includes Upper Lake, Nice, Blue Lake, Bachelor Valley, and Lake Pillsbury.
Agendas for the town hall meetings are posted on the new websites. Meetings are open to the public and there are no membership requirements; however, to take part in any action taken by the town hall, persons must reside within the area boundaries for that town hall.
Each town hall also has a Governing Council whose members are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. When Council vacancies occur, applications for the Governing Council’s openings can be found on the new websites.
“These groups are the arm of the Board,” Steele stated. “They advise me about the community issues and help move the message of County government into the local community; and they promote this district themselves.”
Steele, continued, “There are so many things that can be done, but they can only be done when you talk with the community in a forum. This is where accomplishments are going to happen locally – at these community Councils.”
Residents in the various District 3 areas are encouraged to participate in upcoming town hall meetings.
