Town in search of new faces



Independent reporter

It’s that time of the year again.

Town of Stettler administration is looking for new members for its many boards and committees.

There are vacancies in the boards and committees of Planning, Police Advisory, Family and Community Support Services, Airport, Economic Development, Communities In Bloom, Library and the Museum.

“We are always looking for new members, because people do decide to no longer serve on committees and boards,” said Rob Stoutenberg, the town’s chief administrative officer.

“We look at those committees and boards as great stepping-stones to possibly council.”

Duties vary for each board and committee.

“When we have a focused group, it could be quite intense for three to five months, and then really mellow out,” Stoutenberg said.

“If it is something like the airport board, it could be quarterly meetings.”

Stoutenberg believes that volunteering is the best way to get to know the different organizations and what they do in the community.

“It is also a great way to potentially introduce to people to sitting on boards and possibly eventually being a town councillor or a member on other boards,” he said.

The town encourages all community-minded citizens to submit a written application, indicating which areas interest them, to Stoutenberg before Oct. 3. Send submissions to: Town of Stettler, Box 280, Stettler, AB, T0C 2L0, or e-mail
