Citizens Advisory Committee members agree on Guiding Principles

May 6, 2019 — All seven members of the Citizens Advisory Committee agreed to sign and abide by Guiding Principles in their positions on the committee. They agreed to:

Follow spirit and letter of the Colorado Open Public Meetings Act.
Encourage public input. Consider large community meeting when grant applications are rolled-out.
Disclose personal and professional relationships with grant applicants. The other members are to determine if the conflicted member will refrain from discussion and voting.
Fully support majority-vote decisions and not express individual opposing views.
Work for the best interest of the program and not act as a representative of one of the funding areas or region of the county.

Not represent interests of any nonprofit, government agency or contractor.
