Leggett Seeks Applicants for Rustic Roads Advisory Committee

County Executive Ike Leggett is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on the Rustic Roads Advisory Committee for an individual who represents a civic association located in the agricultural reserve, and an individual with knowledge of roadway engineering through practical experience and training. The incumbent who represents a civic association is eligible to apply for reappointment. All members must be Montgomery County residents. The deadline for applying is November 16.

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 per year; usually the fourth Tuesday evening of each month at 6 p.m. in the Executive Office Building in Rockville.

Applicants of diverse backgrounds, professions, gender, geography, disability and ethnicity are encouraged to apply. Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Leggett’s appointments are subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of those selected for appointment are made public as part of the confirmation process.   Apply online.
