The call has gone out to residents interested in serving on the city’s Recreation Commission, which is in the process of being re-established.
The city is seeking three to five members of the community to serve on the commission.
Members must be registered voters in San Joaquin County and must reside within the Escalon Unified School District. At least three of the members must live within the Escalon city limits.
The Recreation Commission is the liaison of the recreation department to the community. Officials said they are looking for volunteers who will “not only be a part of the commission but also take part in the programs” and be an active volunteer/member. The commission is an advisory board and will provide input on a variety of recreation activities ranging from sports programs and facilities to help meet the needs of the community.
Meetings are planned on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
Members will provide advice and offer community perspectives regarding recreation services and programming, while also gathering input from the community on the types of programs that are wanted. They will also assist in the organizing of recreation programs both by policy and participation within the programs.
Applications can be picked up at City Hall, 2060 McHenry Ave., from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Deadline for returning the application to City Hall is Tuesday, April 22 by 5 p.m.
