Social Services Advisory Committee

The Board of Churchill County Commissioners is seeking ONE (1) public-spirited citizen, who meets the qualifications, who is willing to serve as a member on the Churchill County Social Services Advisory Committee. This advisory board to the County Commissioners will meet at least quarterly.

This three-member board advises the Board of County Commissioners on decisions regarding low-income services provided by the Churchill County Social Services Department. The attached description gives further details regarding the committee member requirements. For further information regarding this committee, please contact Social Services Director Shannon Ernst at (775) 423-6695.

Currently the position the county is seeking to fill is the Low-Income Representative. It is highly recommended low-income individuals serve on the board, but it is not required that all Low-Income Representatives be low-income themselves. Representatives who are not low-income must represent the low-income community in some legitimate capacity. This can include someone with firsthand experience or direct knowledge of the challenges facing the low- income population in Churchill County. The ideal Low-Income Representative would be BOTH low-income and active in the low-income community and anti-poverty causes.

Interested persons may obtain an application at the Human Resources Department, 155 N. Taylor Street, Suite 155, Fallon, Nevada 89406 or at this link. All letters and applications are to be submitted to the above address or via email to Applications will be received until the openings are filled.
