Niagara This Week
Port Colborne residents have a chance to get involved with the city.
The city is currently accepting applications for various positions on boards and committees. Vacancies are the result of current appointments concluding, resignations and some positions that weren’t previously filled. The city will be accepting applications until Jan. 13.
Residents can apply for positions on Heritage Port Colborne (Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee), the Port Colborne Historical and Marine Museum board and the Port Colborne Transit Advisory committee (an education representative and senior’s representative).
Appointments last four years, but those filling positions for people who resigned or vacancies that were never filled will serve the remainder of the original term.
Applicants must be, unless otherwise stated: 18 or older, an eligible voter for the City of Port Colborne, not disqualified by the Municipal Act, Municipal Election Actor the Planning Act and must not be an employee of the city or the board.
