The Clatsop County Board of Commissioners is seeking volunteers to fill four vacancies on the Public Works Advisory Committee.

The committee advises the County Road Department and Board of Commissioners on equipment purchases, project development for capital construction, maintenance and safety improvements to the county road system. The committee usually meets on a Tuesday each month at 6:30 p.m. The vacancies are for a two-year term ending Oct. 31, 2004.

People volunteering for an appointment should be prepared to attend meetings of the group and be aware that any member with three unexcused absences during their term will be considered to have resigned his or her appointment.

People interested in being appointed are encouraged to contact the county administrator's office at 325-1000 for further information and to obtain an application form. The application form must be returned by Dec. 23.
