The Itasca County Board of Commissioners reviews Committee/Commission/Board appointments on an annual basis.
The first annual advertisements for vacancies on various committees/commissions/boards are placed in County newspapers in early fall (generally in September). Applications are then accepted in the Itasca County Administrative Services Department (Courthouse, Room #103), as per advertisement.
If an insufficient number of applications are received for vacancies, a second advertisement will be placed in the newspapers with circulation in the areas of the County pertinent to remaining vacancies. Applications are then accepted in the Itasca County Administrative Services Department (Courthouse, Room #103), as per advertisement.
In late November or early December, the Itasca County Board of Commissioners will hold a Work Session for the purposes of reviewing all applications and making tentative appointments to advertised vacancies. Tentative appointments are not final - some tentative appointments may be reviewed at the Organizational Board meeting held in January. Also, if the incumbent has applied, he/she is not assured of reappointment.
At the Organizational Board meeting, the Itasca County Board of Commissioners finalizes the the tentative appointments made at the Work Session and/or makes further appointments or changes to committees/commissions/boards, which may include changes to tentative appointments.
Following completion of the appointment process, communications will be sent to all appointees and non-appointees to inform the applicants of the action taken in regards to their application.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Committee/Commission/Board appointments or process, please contact Deputy Clerk of the County Board Amanda Schultz at (218) 327-7362 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
