The Pasco County Commission has approved the following reappointments to the county’s Environmental Lands Acquisition Committee:
- A one-year reappointment of Patty Fesmire
- A two-year reappointment of Janie Howie
- A three-year reappointment of Josh McCart
- A three-year reappointment of Mona Neville
The committee consists of 11 volunteer members, according to background materials in the board’s agenda packet.
Five members shall have, at a minimum, a bachelor’s degree in the natural and/or environmental sciences. These five members also shall comprise the Scientific Subcommittee. Four other members shall have expertise in at least one of the following fields: real estate, business, or finance. One member shall have expertise in governmental affairs (with an emphasis in funding sources). One member shall be a layperson with interest in the land acquisition program.
The committee cannot have more than three members who do not live in Pasco County.
Another committee vacancy will occur soon, as Mac Davis has opted not to seek reappointment.
That leaves a position open for someone with expertise in real estate, business, and/or finance, which the Natural Resources Division intends to fill soon.
