Restoration Advisory Board Seeking Community Participation

HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- Hill Air Force Base's Restoration Advisory Board is seeking applicants interested in representing the Hill AFB Community on the board that works with the Air Force on environmental cleanup decisions that affect the base and the surrounding communities.

Residents or those who work on Hill AFB are eligible to submit an application for the Hill AFB position.

"We're looking for those with an interest in environmental issues and a desire to serve their community," said Mark Loucks, chief of Environmental Restoration for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center-Hill, whose organization oversees the environmental cleanup on Hill AFB and in the local communities. "We value the input our RAB community and city representatives provide and they play a vital role in our cleanup program."

Established in 1995, Hill's RAB was formed to increase public participation throughout the ongoing environmental cleanup process and to allow community members and other stakeholders to have meaningful dialog with Hill environmental officials.  The RAB is a committee comprised of community members from seven cities surrounding the base that are affected by Hill AFB groundwater contamination. In addition, representatives from state, local and federal agencies also participate, as well as other interested stakeholders such as the Davis School District and Weber State University. 

To apply, those interested may download and complete the online application.  Applications may also be requested by calling the number listed below.  Mailing instructions are on the application.  Mailed applications must be postmarked on or before July 12.  Emailed applications must be received by 4 p.m. on July 12.

The RAB will review the applications and will select a representative at the group's July 27 meeting.  Applicants are encouraged to attend the meeting and, if present, will be allowed two minutes to introduce themselves prior to a secret-ballot vote.  RAB meetings are open to the public and are held at the Sunset City Offices, 200 West 1300 North in Sunset, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Community RAB members serve without compensation for a two-year term and are expected to attend quarterly RAB meetings or send an alternate in their place. Applicants should be prepared to devote approximately four hours per month to their RAB responsibilities, if selected.  RAB members will have the opportunity to review cleanup plans, budgets and program priorities, and comment on technical documents and reports.

For more information about the RAB or about the base's environmental cleanup program, contact Carly Siddoway, the coordinator for the Hill AFB RAB, at 801-775-6760.
