Encinitas recruiting for appointed commissions positions

ENCINITAS — The city of Encinitas is looking for applicants for various positions on appointed boards and commissions — including four seats on the city planning commission.

The seats of Glenn O’Grady, Al Apuzzo and Tony Brandenburg — who represent Leucadia, New Encintas and Olivenhain, respectively — are up for appointment, as well as the seat for Tasha Boerner Horvath, who was elected to the City Council.

The three normal appointments are for three-year terms that would start March 1 and expire in 2020. Boerner Horvath’s seat would expire in 2018.

Incumbents who have not reached term limits — commissioners can only serve two consecutive terms on their respective boards — for the respective commissions must apply before 6 p.m. Jan. 12, and all others have until 6 p.m. Jan. 26. The City Council will interview all applicants at the Feb. 15 council meeting and make the appointments Feb. 22.

All of the terms would begin March 1.
