The Southeast Area Commission on Transportation is seeking a new member to provide input and insight regarding transportation related bicyclist and pedestrian concerns in the Malheur, Grant and Harney county area of Eastern Oregon, according to an Oregon Department of Transportation press release. The SEACT is hoping someone with a background or interest in this field, plus an interest in improving the state’s transportation’s system will apply for the open volunteer position. More information about these opportunities is available by contacting Sean Maloney at 541-823-4025 or by email at sean.maloney@odot.state.or.us. To fill out an application please contact Judy Moore at 541-276-6745, or by email at Judy.Moore@geodc.net. The SEACT is hoping to have applications in hand by July 11, 2015

“The South East Area Commission on Transportation is a very engaged group that helps address all aspects of transportation, including surface, marine, air, and transportation safety,” Maloney said. “We currently have numerous representatives from city, county and state agencies within the Malheur, Harney and Grant County area and are looking for a new member who can help represent the interests of bicyclist and pedestrians in this three-county section of eastern Oregon.”

Ideally, the new SEACT member will live or work within the tri-county district, but it is not a requirement of the volunteer positions.

The SEACT typically meets on the fourth Monday of every other month, rotating meeting locations between Malheur, Grant and Harney counties. The next scheduled meeting will be held in John Day on July 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
