Merrickville-Wolford council appointed the members of their new municipal committees at the meeting of July 22. This is the culmination of a long process of identifying necessary committees, creating terms of reference, and then putting a call out for community volunteers. Mayor Doug Struthers says that all the individuals who put forward their names as volunteers on advisory committees will receive a thank you from council. Successful candidates will be receiving a package with their respective committee’s terms of reference, and staff will be setting up a municipal committee orientation session for all new appointees in August. The first official meetings of the new committees of council will be in September.
