Call for Committee Members
The Town of Cardston is currently seeking for volunteers from the community to serve as members at large on several committees:
Chinook Intermunicipal Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (3 positions)
Economic Development Committee (1 position)
The Truth and Reconciliation Advisory Committee (quorum needed)
The Town of Cardston is looking for 3 citizens to sit on the Chinook Intermunicipal Subdivision and Development Appeal Board. This Board will require the participants to take a one day training course in Lethbridge prior to being allowed to sit at a hearing (the training will have to be redone every 3 years). The participant will participate in any Appeal hearings in Cardston and may also be asked to travel to other communities to participate in hearings for them (board members will be compensated for their time and travel). The appeal board does not meet on a regular basis, it only meets when someone appeals a decision that the Town’s Municipal Subdivision & Development Authority has made, the Town of Cardston has only had 2 appeals in the last 10 years. Most of the Appeal hearings will be held in the evenings from about 7:00 to 10:00.
The Economic Development Committee is a Council Committee that works with the Economic Development Officer in the endeavor of improving the economic and social well-being of the people of Cardston.
The Truth and Reconciliation Advisory Committee will be tasked with advising Council on how to best implement the Calls To Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada that specifically apply to local governments. Read the bylaw linked above for details.
