Body

The Hernando/Citrus MPO Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) consists of eleven (11) members appointed by the MPO.  There are currently six (6) voting CAC members.  The CAC is composed of volunteer members from the community who have interests in evaluating and proposing solutions from a citizen's perspective concerning alternative transportation proposals and critical issues.  There are currently five (5) vacant positions on the CAC as follows:

 

·              Unincorporated - Hernando County

·              City of Crystal River

·              Low Income and/or Minority Representative - Hernando County

·              Public Transit User - Hernando County

·              Public Transit User - Citrus County. 

 

The MPO Board will recall that three (3) applications were submitted for the Unincorporated - Hernando County position; however, the late receipt of one application did not afford MPO staff nor the MPO Board adequate time to review at the December 13 ,2017, MPO Board meeting.  The MPO Board postponed consideration of the Unincorporated - Hernando County selection until their January 30, 2018, meeting.  Subsequently, one of the applications was withdrawn so only two (2) applications are currently under consideration.  The applications are attached for the MPO Board's review.

 

The City of Crystal River Representative, Low Income and/or Minority Representative for Hernando County, Public Transit User for Hernando County and Public Transit User for Citrus County remain vacant as no applications have been received.
