Kitsap County looking for some volunteers

POULSBO — The Kitsap County Commission is seeking a District 1 representative to serve on the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.

Board members provide input and advice to the Kitsap County Parks and Recreation director and the Board of Commissioners regarding the acquisition, development and administration of county park properties. The committee meets monthly on the third Wednesday of the month, 5-7 p.m., at various locations around the county.

The Kitsap Regional Coordinating Council is looking for Kitsap County residents to serve on its citizens advisory boards.

Board members review housing, capital improvement and planning applications, then make funding recommendations for the allocation of Community Development Block Grants and HOME Investment Partnership federal funds.

Council members participate in a one-day training and conduct public applicant interviews while actively participating with other board members in developing priorities for use of funds.

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, in coordination with Kitsap County Volunteer Services, is seeking volunteers for its Citizens On Patrol (COP) program.

COP volunteers support unincorporated areas of the county, providing Sheriff’s Office presence to enhance public safety, enforce parking-prohibited regulations, conduct home vacation checks, process abandoned vehicles and assist with traffic control and community events. Volunteers commit at least 16 hours per month and attend monthly training meetings for a minimum of one year.
