The City of Wilsonville is accepting applications until Monday, Nov. 30, 4:30 p.m., from Wilsonville residents to serve on the City’s new Wilsonville-Metro Community Enhancement Committee. The City is recruiting a total of four members to serve in 2016 on an advisory committee that is to oversee the new Wilsonville-Metro Community Enhancement Program, which the City Council created in July 2015.
Funded by a per-ton charge on biodegradable solid-waste, the program was extended by Metro regional government in 2015 to cover all cities with a waste-transfer facility, including the Willamette Resources Inc. facility operated by Republic Services in Wilsonville.
Funds collected under the Community Enhancement Program are used for “enhancing the host community of the facility from which the fees have been collected” and includes projects that “rehabilitate and enhance the area within the city.” Eligible projects can improve the appearance or environmental quality of the community, increase reuse and recycling opportunities or improve recreational areas and programs.
City staff estimate that the committee will meet once or twice in the first quarter of 2016 to review and prioritize for implementation nominated community enhancement projects.
Applications to serve on the Wilsonville-Metro Community Enhancement Committee are due by Monday, Nov. 30, 4:30 pm, and are available online at the City’s website, www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/apply. Applications may be requested from and submitted to Sandra King, City Recorder, Wilsonville City Hall, 29799 SW Town Center Loop East, Wilsonville, OR 97070; 503-570-1506; email@example.com. Questions about the committee’s purpose and work program may be directed to Mark Ottenad, Public/Government Affairs Director, at 503-570-1505; firstname.lastname@example.org.
