Sturgeon County is still looking to fill positions on boards and committees.
The spots can be very important.
"Members may be delegated certain duties that may be advisory or decision making in nature," explained senior communications officer, Sheila Moore. "Serving on a board or committee requires attending monthly meetings and sometimes undertaking some duties in between."
Moore added volunteering this way is not only a great way to give back to the community but also to learn about how government works, policy writing and learn new skills.
The county is looking to fill a few positions on a number of boards and committees, including:
-The Agricultural Services Board
-The Assessment Review Board
-The Calahoo-Villeneuve Gravel Extraction Committee
-The Community Services Advisory Board for Division Five
-The Economic Development Board
-The Subdivision and Development Appeal Board
Though many people have come forward, the county still needs more volunteers.
Volunteers, referred to as Members at Large, are appointed by council for a term, limited to two terms.
Residents of Sturgeon County can apply online until October 31 for the selection process.
