The Travis County Commissioners Court is seeking applications from qualified individuals to serve on the City of Austin Animal Advisory Commission (AAC). The AAC is comprised of 13 members appointed to four-year terms; 11 are selected by the City of Austin and two selected by the Travis County Commissioners Court.

The City of Austin Animal Advisory Commission is one of the primary conduits for influencing the policies and procedures governing the delivery of animal services. The City and County collaboratively provide animal welfare services throughout Travis County. The AAC advises the Austin City Council and the Travis County Commissioners Court on compliance with Texas Health and Safety Code Chapter 823 Animal Shelters), animal welfare policies and on budget priorities identified by the Commission and the community. Additionally, the AAC promotes collaboration between interested parties relating to animal welfare in the county by identifying proactive, creative approaches to engage and facilitate communication within the animal welfare community.

The Commissioners Court is looking for candidates that will include the voice of residents of other cities and villages in the County, with the goal of establishing new relationships to create a better understanding of the different animal issues faced throughout Travis County.

The AAC meets on the second Monday of every month from at 6:00 p.m.

Deadline is May 23rd.
