The Delaware County Board of Commissioners is seeking to appoint two members to the Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities. The length of terms is four years. Terms for the available seats will commence January 1, 2023.
The appointed individuals must be residents of Delaware County and citizens of the United States. The Board of Commissioners must ensure that two appointees have immediate family members, either child or adult, who are eligible for and/or receiving DCBDD services. Individuals who meet this requirement are encouraged to apply.
The Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities consists of seven (7) members. The duties of a board member include the following:
- Develop and approve the policies of the Board for the operation of programs, services, and supports;
- Become familiar with issues affecting individuals who are developmentally disabled;
- Plan and set priorities based on available funds for the provision of programs and services;
- Employ and supervise a qualified Superintendent.
Board candidates must submit declarations of eligibility before they can be appointed. This step will be facilitated by the Commissioners’ Office.
Potential conflicts of interest for Board members are outlined in Ohio Revised Code, and typically focus on board members who have a family member receiving services from a provider who has a contract before the Board, or is an elected official in the County.
Interested individuals can apply by using Delaware County’s online application portal. It can be accessed at https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/codelawareoh/transferjobs.
