Political Watch 1/9/14

• Jan. 3 was the last day the city of Santa Maria accepted applications from those wanting to serve on the Central Coast Commission for Senior Citizens, Area Agency on Aging; the All-America City Committee; the Landmark Committee, or the Santa Maria Community Television Committee. Appointments will be made by Santa Maria City Council on Jan. 21. One nomination will be made to fill a two-year term ending in July 2015 for the Central Coast Commission for Senior Citizens, Area Agency on Aging. The board is responsible for the operations—policy setting, allocations, and personnel—for the Area Agency on Aging, HICAP, and Senior Employment. The board serves Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. Two appointments for two-year terms will be made for the All-America City Committee, which works to enhance, maintain, and evaluate the civic health and pride of Santa Maria through partnerships and creative approaches, ensuring collaboration with the public and private sector, in the true spirit of the All-America City Program. The committee meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. One appointment for a three-year term will be made for the Landmark Committee, which is a five-member committee that advises the City Council on the preservation and designation of historical landmarks. The committee meets the second Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m. Two appointments for two-year terms will be made for the Santa Maria Community Television Committee, which is a three-member board that sets policies and regulations relative to public educational and governmental (PEG) access. It also serves as an appeals board for sanctions levied by the PEG station manager against members. The committee meets no less than two times a year on an as-needed basis.
