Volunteers sought for water conservation task force

The drought continues, despite the recent rain, and the town of Portola Valley is looking for up to nine residents to sit on a new task force to consider ideas on how property owners, residents and town staff can conserve water.

Anyone interested should email or fax a message to the Town Council by 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 11. The council plans to conduct interviews at its regular meeting on Wednesday, March 12. The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road.

The council asks that applicants consider the time and energy needed to serve on "this important task force," probably a minimum of six hours a month, with meetings scheduled during business hours. Advisory roles to the task force are available if the timing of meetings is unworkable.

Go to tinyurl.com/wtr32 for the task force's charter.

Go to tinyurl.com/wtr33 for the committee handbook.

To let the Town Council know of your interest, send an email to towncenter@portolavalley.net or a fax to (650) 851-4677.

For more information, contact Brandi de Garmeaux at bdegarmeaux@portolavalley.net or 650-851-1700 ext. 222.
