Volunteers are needed to fill three seats on the seven-member Tulare County Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee.
The committee spends Indian gaming money from a state fund to offset impacts from Eagle Mountain Casino near Porterville. Last year, it appropriated $263,000, and this year it will spend $273,000.
The three representatives will be appointed by mutual agreement of the Tulare County Board of Supervisors and the Tule River Indian Tribe.
Applicants must be Tulare County residents. Applications are available at the Tulare County Administration Building, 2800 W. Burrel Ave., Visalia, or (559) 636-5000.
