Leggett Seeks Applicants for Rustic Roads Advisory Committee

County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill three vacancies on the Rustic Roads Advisory Committee. Applicants in the following categories are needed:  one owner/operator of commercial farmland in the County earning 50 percent or more of their income from farming, one person who knows rural preservation techniques through practical experience and training, and one person who represents civic associations in areas located outside the Agricultural Reserve where rustic roads are located. All members must be Montgomery County residents.

The Rustic Roads Advisory Committee consists of seven voting members. Its duties include promoting public awareness of the Rustic Roads Program and reviewing and commenting on the classification of rustic roads, development proposals that affect rustic roads, and executive regulations and policies that may affect the Program.

Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. The committee meets at least six times a year, usually the fourth Tuesday evening of each month at 6 p.m. in the Executive Office Building in Rockville.
