Are you a Butts County resident interested in service to your community? The County’s appointed boards, commissions, and authorities assist the Commission and Local Government by serving in advisory capacities and by overseeing various functions or projects. Each year we have seats that come up for appointments and reappointments, to be filled by the Board of Commissioners.

The following boards have openings to be filled in June. If you are interested in serving on one of these boards, please fill out and return an application to our office. You can select up to three different boards or committees that you are interested in and we will keep your application on file. Please rank your choices with 1 being the first most desirable choice, 2 being the second choice and 3 being the third choice. We review each applicant for a particular board seat whenever we have an opening (sometimes openings come up at other times during the year and if suitable candidates are available, we consider them at that time).

The deadline to apply for this year’s round of mid-year appointments is Friday, May 31, 2019 by noon

Applications should be submitted in a sealed envelope and returned to the Board of Commissioners Office, to the attention of Michael Brewer. An application may downloaded and printed by going to this LINK or you may pick one up at the Board of Commissioner’s Office at 625 W. Third Street, Suite 4, Jackson Georgia 30233

Please remember that even if the board you are interested in does not have a current opening coming up, that you are welcome to apply for it or other boards on the application that may have openings come up. Additionally, if you are already serving on a board that has an opening coming up, and wish to be reappointed, you only need to send a letter offering to continue service. You do not have to fill out a new application.
