Fish Passage Task Force application period extended

SALEM - The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has extended its deadline for applications to become a member of the Fish Passage Task Force.

Applications must be received from qualified individuals interested in fish passage issues by 5 p.m., Friday, Dec. 12.

The Fish Passage Task Force is a citizen advisory group created by the 2001 Oregon State Legislature that meets at least four times each year to work with and advise ODFW on fish passage issues. All expenses associated with these meetings are paid by ODFW. The Task Force is composed of nine members, with three representing fishing and conservation, three representing water users, and three representing the public-at-large. ODFW's Director appoints Task Force members to four-year terms, with a two-term limit.

Currently ODFW is seeking one water user representative to replace a Task Force member who resigned as a result of a career move. ODFW is seeking applicants to fulfill the remainder of this Task Force member's term, which expires in February 2006, with the potential for re-appointment to another term lasting through February 2010. The application deadline was extended from October 31 because not enough applications were submitted.

A paper or electronic copy of the application form may be obtained from ODFW by contacting Rachelle Herbert at (503) 947-6224 or [email protected]. Signed applications must be received by the deadline and should be addressed and mailed to: ODFW - Fish Passage Program, 3406 Cherry Avenue NE, Salem, OR 97303.
