Indian Gaming Committee Seeks to Fill Three Vacancies

Tulare County’s Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee (TCLCBC) is seeking interested residents to fill three vacancies.

The purpose of the committee is to facilitate the distribution of grant funds made from the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund. Last year, more than $263,000 was appropriated to the seven-member committee for distribution to eligible entities. Funding allocated for the TCLCBC to administer is mandated by Senate Bill 621 (2003), which makes grant funding available to counties, cities and special districts impacted by tribal gaming from the Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund.

The committee is composed of seven members, consisting of the following:

- Two County representatives appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
- Three representatives appointed by mutual agreement of the Board of Supervisors and the Tule River Indian Tribe.
- Two representatives appointed by the Tule River Indian Tribe.

In addition to the seven members, there are also three alternate positions. The committee meets at least twice per year. Committee members do not receive stipends or mileage reimbursement.

Currently, the TCLCBC is seeking two mutually selected representatives and one mutually selected-alternate representative. You must be at least 18-years-old and a Tulare County resident to apply for the committee.

Applications for the TCLCBC can be obtained from the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors located at the County Administration Building, 2800 W. Burrel Ave. Visalia, CA 93291 or you can call 559/636-5000 and request an application be mailed to you.
