Department of Growth Management seeks board volunteer

Published: Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 02:09 PM.

FORT WALTON BEACH — Okaloosa County’s Department of Growth Management seeks a volunteer to serve as consumer representative for the Electrical Trade Industry Board.

Industry boards include the construction, electrical, plumbing and mechanical competency boards.

The trade industry boards review qualifications for competency cards, hear complaints and consider disciplinary action against license holders. The positions — which give consumers a voice on issues related to those trades — have existed for more than 10 years, as required by local ordinance.

The representative must be an Okaloosa County resident, and board representatives must not be involved in that particular industry.

Typically, boards meet monthly in the Fort Walton Beach Water and Sewer building; however, meetings depend on applications.

Contact Angie Edge, 651-7534, or Renee Lucas, 651-7526, if you are interested in volunteering for one of these trade industry boards.
