The timeline of when appointments occur varies with the number of vacancies a particular board has and the number of applications received for a specific vacancy.
Typically, we try to have a representative sample of applicants from which the Commission can choose. Therefore, it may be some time between when you submit your application and when it goes before the board to be considered.
Once we are ready to move forward with your application, the Advisory Board Coordinator or the staff liaison will notify you about when the Commission will consider your application.
Appointments are made at Commission meetings, which occur on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month in Room 209 of the County Administration Building. We invite you to speak on your behalf, but if you cannot attend, we encourage you to e-mail comments to the Commissioners at BOCC@alachuacounty.us.
If you apply for a board that does not have any vacancies, we will hold your application for one year.
If you are not selected to serve on the advisory board you applied for, we will hold your application for one year and if another vacancy on that same board occurs, we will contact you to see if you would like to be considered.
