Want to make Charleston County a better place? Chances are there’s a vacancy on a county board or commission that you can fill.

County Council announced 43 vacancies on its boards and commissions last week, and we’ve listed them below. If you’re interested in filling one of the positions, you’ll need to fill out an appointment application by Aug. 5. County Council’s Administration Policy and Rules Committee, made up of five councilmembers, will consider all applications during a meeting on Aug. 15 at 5 p.m. and make recommendations for a full council vote on Aug. 21 at 7 p.m.
