Coquitlam seeks community advisors
Coquitlam residents who want to advise council next year on issues related to the arts, multiculturalism, sports, mobility and youth justice can apply to city hall.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, Jan. 20 for the following committees: arts and culture; multiculturalism; sport council; universal access-ability; and joint family court.
Selected candidates will start their year of volunteer work in February. To offer your services, visit www.coquitlam.ca, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-927-3010.
Last week, council established those bodies for 2012 and appointed elected officials as chairs and vice-chairs. As well, it re-instituted the Coquitlam River Aggregate Committee; Strategic Investment Advisory Panel (formerly the Economic Development and Investment Advisory Panel); Maillardville Commercial and Cultural Revitalization Advisory Committee; Riverview Lands Advisory Committee; and Sustainability and Environmental Advisory Committee — all of which have current representatives from the community or organizations.
