Member sought to fill transit board seat

The Delaware County Board of Commissioners hopes to appoint a non-Republican member to serve on the Delaware County Transit Board, a seven-member board that provides governance for the county's public transit system known as the Delaware Area Transit Agency or DATA Bus.

Appointments are made for three-year terms. Qualified applicants must be electors of Delaware County.

Ohio law states, "No more than four members of the board shall belong to the same political party." The current transit board includes four members who are Republican electors.

Interested applicants can obtain a Board Appointment Application by picking it up at the Delaware County Commissioners Office, 101 N. Sandusky St., Delaware, calling the commissioners' office at 740-833-2120 to have an application sent; or printing an application from the Delaware County website at and mailing the completed form to the address above.

The deadline for applications to be received is April 1.
