The 2008-09 El Dorado County Grand Jury is seeking people willing to serve a one-year term.
The Grand Jury acts as an investigative body that ensures county, special districts and city government are effectively run. It generally meets weekly. Members frequently meet in committee meetings to study particular concerns and problems. Jurors are also called upon to confer with government officials and other citizens in order to gain information and insight as to the matters that are under investigation.
Meetings pay a maximum rate of $15 per day, plus mileage.
Applicants must be United States citizens, at least 18, have resided in the county for at least one year and cannot hold an elected office.
Applications are available at the Superior Court, 495 Main St. in Placerville and online at www.co.el-dorado.ca.us/grandjury or call (530) 621-6451. The deadline is May 4, with appointments made in June.
