The Pulaski County Auditor’s Office is looking for interested members of the community to apply for a position on the Pleasant View Rest Home Advisory Board after it was discovered that the board had been established outside of the requirements of state statute. President of the commissioners Larry Brady explained that the board consists of seven members and was established in 2006, but it never went to the council for approval and it does not conform to state standards.
Brady said the advisory board can have no more than four members of one political party with four-year terms. Currently, the board has one-year appointments, which violates the statute.
As a result, the board will undergo a complete overhaul, and the commissioners are requesting that interested parties fill out a form at the auditor’s office explaining their interest in joining the board. The form will also ask parties to explain their knowledge of problems at the county home, and the proper care and treatment of county home residents.
Applicants have until 4 p.m. on Feb. 21 to submit their forms. All present members are welcome to apply.
