Lucas County seeks to fill 2 new committees

Lucas County commissioners are looking for people to serve on two new committees, one aimed at creating opportunities and resources for people with disabilities, and the other charged with providing insight and recommendations on issues relating to the county dog warden.

The Toledo-Lucas County Commission on Disabilities is a 21-member panel composed of individuals with disabilities as well as other people representing the disabled community.

Members will advance opportunities and coordinate resources to promote full participation of people with disabilities within the community.

At least eight of the seats on the panel must be held by individuals with disabilities or family members of individuals with disabilities.

The Lucas County Dog Warden Advisory Committee is an 11-member unit whose members will provide foresight and suggestions to the board of county commissioners on issues relating to Dog Warden Tom Skeldon.

Two seats must be filled by members of the community at large, and the remaining will be composed of residents recommended by local animal welfare agencies, the Toledo Police Department, the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, and the Toledo Veterinary Medical Association.

Members must be Lucas County residents and must not have been issued a first-degree misdemeanor citation from county dog warden personnel.

Applications for both committees are available at One Government Center, Suite 800, or by calling 419-213-4500.

Applications are also available online at www.co.lucas.oh.us.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 30.
