    Cultural Council Vacancy


    Do you love the arts and sciences and want to get more involved in your community? The Jefferson County Cultural Council has an upcoming vacancy for Commissioner District 2 that serves central Jefferson County in the communities of Golden, Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and Edgewater.

    This board serves as an advisory body to the Board of County Commissioners regarding the distribution of Tier III funds generated by the Scientific Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).

    Since 1989, the SCFD has distributed funds from a 1/10th of one percent sales and use tax to cultural facilities throughout the seven-county Colorado metropolitan area. Each county is provided with the funds collected within that specific county for distribution. The funds support cultural facilities whose primary purpose is to enlighten and entertain the public through the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement and preservation of art, music, theatre, dance, zoology, botany, natural history and cultural history.

    The Cultural Council meets every Wednesday evening from the last Wednesday in April through the second Wednesday in June. The council meets in Hearing Room 2 at the Administrative and Courts Facility, 100 Jefferson County Parkway in Golden. Members also attend a few other activities such as a retreat in September, presentations to the Board of County Commissioners in June and to the SCFD Board of Directors in late September, and a check distribution ceremony in October.   

    The time commitment to the council also includes reviewing up to 10 applications each week prior to the interviews on Wednesday evenings, from April through May. Council members average about 150 hours each year on council activities.

    The person right for the job is one who is interested in the cultural and scientific activities within the community, one who appreciates what these organizations offer to Jeffco citizens, but also has a mind for business and a good understanding of financial issues facing small businesses. The role as a member of the Cultural Council is not just to give away money, but to judge the viability of these organizations and choose to distribute monies in a way that is, first and foremost, beneficial to the citizens of Jefferson County.
