Cumberland County seeks applicants for Civic Center board
PORTLAND — Officials are accepting applications for three seats on the board of trustees of the Cumberland County Civic Center.
The county Board of Commissioners will appoint an at-large trustee, representing the entire county, as well as trustees representing District 3, which includes Falmouth, Scarborough and Westbrook; and District 4, which includes Gorham, Windham, Standish, Frye Island, Baldwin and Sebago.
The at-large seat, one of two, is now held by Joseph Bruno. Chairman Neal Pratt currently represents District 3; Gary Plummer represents District 4. The commissioners may reappoint trustees, but will also accept applications from county residents.
Each trustee will serve a three-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2014. The board of trustees is the governing and policy-setting body for the Civic Center, which is now closed as it undergoes a $34 million renovation. The arena in downtown Portland is expected to reopen by January.
County residents may apply for the positions by requesting an application from the Cumberland County Executive Office, 142 Federal St., Room 102, Portland, ME 04101, or by calling 871-8380. Applications must be returned by noon on Friday, Nov. 29.
