THE <mailto:recorder at portervillerecorder.com>  RECORDER 


The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) Fisheries Restoration Grant
Program (FRGP) is seeking nominations to fill two vacancies on the FRGP Peer
Review Committee (PRC).

Pursuant to the Public Resources Code, section 6217, members of the PRC are
appointed by the Director of DFG to provide advice, oversight and
recommendations regarding grant funding priorities for the FRGP. Seven of
the PRC's 14 representatives are recommended by the California Advisory
Committee on Salmon and Steelhead Trout. The remaining seven represent the
following interests: one representative from the agriculture industry, one
representative from the timber industry, one representative of public water
agency interests, one academic or research scientist with expertise in
anadromous fisheries restoration, and three county supervisors from coastal
counties (the county supervisors are recommended by the California State
Association of Counties).

Because the FRGP only awards grants to applicants within coastal counties of
California, all representatives must reside in or represent interests in
coastal counties in which salmon and steelhead exist.

Currently, the agriculture and timber representative seats are vacant. DFG
will accept nominations from the general public for these positions through
June 30. Appointed representatives will serve for four years, starting with
the PRC meeting in the Fall of 2010.

To nominate a representative for either the agriculture or timber seat, send
a nomination letter to Patty Forbes, FRGP Coordinator, 830 S St.,
Sacramento, CA 95811. Nomination letters should include a resume of the
candidate and verification that they represent coastal counties in which
salmon and steelhead exist
