Calling for Committee members!

If you feel that you could show us a thing or two when it comes to finances or recreation, now’s your chance to do it.

Shape aspects of the Municipality by participating on the ground floor. We need two members from the general public to join our new Audit Committee, and the Recreation & Parks Committee is missing a representative for District 2 (Hubbards/Fox Point/Mill Cove area). If you are interested, or know someone who would be a great member of either of these committees, please consider applying.

  1. AUDIT COMMITTEE (NEW!) – Do you love working with numbers? Do you have experience in finance and/or auditing? Are you looking for a way to contribute to your community? If you answered yes to all of these questions, we have been looking for you! A vacancy exists for two (2) members of the public for one 1-year term and one 2-year term. This Committee will play a significant role in improving and providing transparency around governance, risk management, and internal control practices of the Municipality. It will play an independent oversight role and advisory role to Council and management. Operational decisions remain the responsibility of management, and policy decisions of Council.

  2. RECREATION & PARKS COMMITTEE – If you live in the Hubbards/Fox Point/Mill Cove area (District 2) and want to help shape recreational activities within the Municipality, you might be interested in sitting on the Recreation & Parks Committee. Since the Committee is made up of representatives from each of the seven Council districts, preference will be given to applicants from District 2, but applicants from other districts will also be considered. This is a three-year term appointment.
