Oakland County Senior Advisory Council Seeks Citizen to Serve

Commissioner Doug Tietz Seeks Citizen to Serve on the Oakland County Senior Advisory Council

Oakland County Commissioner Doug Tietz is seeking applications from residents of the 11th County Commission District to serve on the Oakland County Senior Advisory Council.

“Oakland County is experiencing unprecedented growth in the population of residents above retirement age. County and community leaders must be proactive and work together to meet the needs of this senior boom. I encourage residents of the 11th District that have a strong interest in senior issues to apply for this important position,” stated Commissioner Tietz.

The primary purpose of the Senior Advisory Council is to evaluate and report on information gathered from the community in regards to elderly issues and concerns. The Council meets monthly from September through May with December off, and meetings typically take place on the third Monday with occasional exceptions for holidays or other scheduling conflicts. The Commissioner from each of Oakland County’s 21 County Commission Districts appoints a representative. The County Executive also makes four countywide appointments.

Oakland County Commissioner Doug Tietz (R-Troy) was elected to the Board of Commissioners in 2016, replacing retiring Commissioner Robert Gosselin. The 11th County Commission District includes portions of Troy, Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills.

Residents interested in applying can find the application form online by going to www.oakgov.com and looking under the section “Get involved with the BOC” on the left hand side of the home page. For additional information about the Senior Advisory Council or assistance with application process, please contact Patricia Zawadzki at 248-941-5870 or zawadzkip@oakgov.com.
