There have been two individuals from the Jamesport-South Jamesport Civic Association who put in resumes for the vacancies on both the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Town Planning Board. To-date there has been no response or acknowledgement from Town Hall.

With regard to the Planning Board, the Town Board is calling for a "farmer" to be the new addition -- and yet there sits Dick O'Dea, a local farmer from Herricks Lane.

As usual there was no public notice nor are there any qualifications detailed for the vacancies on these two land use and management boards.

On another note, the vacancy on the Recreation Committee was filled with no public announcement. While the work of George Gabrielson is not in question, it seems that rather than recycling individuals, we provide an opportunity for all interested and qualified persons to apply.
There are several Town committees that need "new blood".  Unfortunately there is no payment for participation. Interested individuals may wish to consider the Architectural Review Board {ARB}; the Conservation Advisory Council [CAC] which by the way has not made any new appointments even though the terms of ALL members expired in 2013; and the many others listed in next column. In essence there is probably an available seat in each and every one.
