Rural Lincoln, Sheridan Municipal Advisory Councils Need Secretaries

The Rural Lincoln and Sheridan municipal advisory councils have vacancies for secretaries.

Placer County currently is taking applications from residents interested in filling one or both of the secretary positions. The Placer County Board of Supervisors will fill the vacancies.

MAC secretaries are contract employees who work for the board. They are paid $150 for each meeting for doing prep work, attending the meeting and handling follow-up duties.

Being a MAC secretary is a chance to serve one’s community while staying up to date on county issues. Secretaries are responsible for mailing out agendas, taking summary minutes and handling related duties.

The county’s 14 MACs advise the Board of Supervisors on issues of public interest in unincorporated areas. They are charged with gathering public comment on a range of topics, including land use, public works, recreation, law enforcement and public health and safety.

The Rural Lincoln MAC normally meets at 7 p.m. on the third Monday of each month at Mount Pleasant Hall in Lincoln.

The Sheridan MAC generally meets at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at Stewart Hall in Sheridan.
