Lucas County residents who wish to be considered to serve on the Toledo/Lucas County Commission on Disabilities are encouraged to apply, depending on where they live, through the City of Toledo or Lucas County websites. Applications will be accepted until 4:30 pm on May 27, 2016.

Members are selected to represent jurisdictions throughout Lucas County; at least 8 of the seats must be held by individuals or family members of people with disabilities. The City of Toledo and Lucas County actively seek to appoint volunteer boards and commissions that reflect the diversity of our community.
