Applications open for city committees
Those resolving to be more civic-minded in the new year will have their chance.
The City of Penticton announced its advisory committee structure for 2012, and issued a call for individuals interested in serving on the committees.
Seven advisory committees will require volunteers for the year ahead: agriculture; climate action; community and business development; development services; fiscal review; heritage, arts and culture; and transportation.
Individuals who want to volunteer to sit on one or more of those committees must submit an application form by Jan. 16. The applications are available at City Hall’s reception, or can be printed off from the city’s website by visiting www.penticton.ca, and going to the “Committees and Boards” section under the City Hall tab.
Completed applications can be dropped off at City Hall, faxed to 250-490-2402 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, call 250-490-2405.
