Coquitlam wants help in making its decisions so the city is making a call out for volunteers to serve on its 2020 advisory committees and the library board.
City council is seeking residents to become members of its culture services, economic development, multiculturalism, sports, sustainability and environmental, and universal access-ability committees and the library board.
Application forms are available online at coquitlam.ca. Applicants are required to demonstrate passion for the community and knowledge relevant to the committee(s) being applied for. They can’t be city of Coquitlam employees. Residents of the city are preferred but can be a representative of an organization operating in Coquitlam. The city is seeking diverse applicants to represent the broader community.
The terms for the appointments are for two years on the library board and one for the advisory committees. Time requirements vary by committee, but the meetings are typically on weekday evenings and they don’t meet in August or December. There is no remuneration for being on a committee
Completed deadlines must be submitted online or postmarked by Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 11:00 p.m. Applications are also available at the city clerk’s office on the second floor of city hall (3000 Guildford Way). Electronic versions of the applications can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available by calling 604-927-3010.
The final decision on the appointments will be made by city council. All applicants will get a letter confirming the appointments.
