Applications are being accepted to fill an opening on the Mesa County Public Library District’s Board of Trustees.
The seven-member volunteer board adopts and oversees the budget, bylaws, and policies of the library district; conducts long-range planning; and prepares an annual financial report to the Mesa County Commissioners.
The open seat on the board was created when a trustee’s term expired. The successful applicant will serve a five-year term. Board terms are for five years, and trustees are limited to two successive terms.
Library district trustees are appointed by the Mesa County Commissioners.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of Mesa County.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, Jan. 20.
