City of Sacramento staff are looking for applicants to fill a recently vacated position on the Utilities Rate Advisory Commission, which has seven members and helps advise Sacramento City Council on rate changes.
“Commissioners are important to city government because they educate people about utilities rates and the rate-setting process, including water, sewer, recycling and solid waste services,” said Carlos Eliason, spokesperson for the City’s Department of Utilities.
Commissioners serve two-year terms and typically meet on the fourth Wednesday of every month.
Applicants must be city of Sacramento residents and have expertise or leadership experience in one or more of several fields, including drinking water, stormwater, wastewater, recycling, solid waste, engineering, law, and accounting.
People can apply for the position by filling out an online application on the City’s Boards and Commissions website by Aug. 15.
There are about 30 City of Sacramento boards and commissions that cover topics including, police, transportation, parks and disabilities.
