Community members interested in serving on a County advisory board or committee still have time to apply.
The deadline to submit an application for a County advisory board or committee has been extended to Sunday, January 22 at 11:59 pm.
The municipality is recruiting for 11 advisory boards and committees as well as nine ward recreation committees. All committees and boards are still accepting applications; however, more applicants are needed for the Accessibility Advisory Committee, Fence Viewers Committee, and the Built & Cultural Heritage Advisory Committee.
Members of the public over 16 years of age are encouraged to apply. Participating on an advisory board or committee provides a unique opportunity to:
- Lend your voice and expertise to help shape decisions and services that impact our community;
- Expand your network and meet new people;
- Gain a broader understanding of how municipal government works.
“Sitting on a local advisory committee and board provides a unique opportunity to provide input on matters that directly impact our community,” Clerk Catalina Blumenberg says. “We are looking for volunteers who represent the diversity in our community to lend your skills and expertise to help make a difference.”
Advisory boards and committees provide Council and staff with input about a wide variety of subjects through discussions, presentations and recommendations. Some committees also organize and participate in community events.
Visit the County website to learn more about each committee and its terms of reference.
