Village Elections will be held on Saturday, April 26 and the River Hill Community Association needs you! The terms of office for four (4) members
on the Association’s current Board of Directors will expire at the end of April. The Association is seeking nominations of individuals to run for election. The open positions have a two year term – May 1, 2014 – April 30, 2016.
The Village Board is responsible for setting policy, overseeing Association finances, and in general promoting the health, safety, and welfare of River Hill residents. The Board of Directors hires a Village Manager who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Association. The Board works closely with the Columbia Association and the other Columbia Villages to provide services and coordinates with County and State officials
to advocate on behalf of the community. Among their many accomplishments in recent years, the River Hill Board of Directors has advocated for pedestrian, bike, and traffic safety improvements; actively monitored and provided input on a variety of development issues; approved a master plan to guide the future of the Village Center; and supported efforts to improve the local watershed. The Board of Directors typically meets one Monday per month at 7 p.m. in Claret Hall.
The nomination period is March 1 – March 21. For your name to be included on the ballot, a valid nomination petition signed by a minimum of ten (10) River Hill residents age eighteen or older must be submitted. A candidate statement and photo are also required. The Nomination Petition is available by clicking NOMINATION PETITION 2014. Candidate statements will appear in the April issue of The Villager and the Columbia Flier election supplement.
Residents interested in running for election to the Board of Directors are encouraged to attend the Board meeting on March 17 to learn more about the responsibilities and current issues of importance to the community. Candidate information packets explaining the election process and providing background information may be picked up at Claret Hall. Residents who are interested in serving are also encouraged to contact the
current Board Members and the Village Manager to find out more. The current Board Members’ contact information can be found on Page 3 of any issue of The Villager or from this website, click on the “News and Links” tab, then click on “The Villager” to view it online.
