Supervisors seek volunteers for 911 surcharge committee

The Carson City Board of Supervisors is seeking applications from those interested in serving on the 911 Surcharge Advisory Committee.

There are two open positions, each for a full-term ending December 2024. For the citizen-at-large position, applicants must be a resident of Carson City and possess knowledge concerning telephone systems for reporting emergencies.

The purpose of the 911 Surcharge Advisory Committee is to serve as the official adviser to the Board of Supervisors in developing a five-year master plan for the enhancement or improvement of the telephone system for reporting an emergency in Carson City and to oversee any money allocated for that purpose.

The committee meetings are held at least quarterly. Applicants should be prepared for a minimum commitment of less than 2 hours a month, and there is no compensation.

Applications will be considered public information and will be accepted until Dec. 16. Interviews for the volunteer positions are tentatively scheduled for the Board of Supervisors meeting Jan. 5.
