Hearing Board Member Needed

The Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (District) is recruiting to fill one position on the District Hearing Board. The Hearing Board is a quasi-judicial body that makes determinations on permit appeals, variances from local District rules and regulations, and considers requests for permit revocations and abatement orders. The Hearing Board meets when there are cases to be heard, on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors Hearing Room in either Santa Barbara or Santa Maria. Members may also be called upon to hear short term variances as they arise.

The Hearing Board is composed of five-members, each with three-year terms: one attorney, one professional engineer, one member of the medical profession (with specialized skills, training, or interests in the fields of environmental medicine, community medicine, or occupational/toxicological medicine), and two public members. The current opening is for the medical profession. The successful candidate will be subject to the provisions of the Conflict of Interest Code, California Government Code 87100 et seq. and will be required to submit a Conflict of Interest Form 700 annually as required by the California Fair Political Practices Commission. In addition, members are required to complete mandatory bi-annual training pursuant to AB1234 (Ethics) and AB1661 (Sexual Harassment Prevention Training and Education).
