A Gazette reader read the piece about the city inviting people to serve as volunteers on boards and committees.

In the story we mentioned there were 18 boards and committees.  We didn’t have the answers at our finger tips and put the request on the “things to try and get done”

Michelle Dwyer, Manager of Engagement and Volunteers: Corporate Communications and Engagement saw the comment and provided us with the following.  Nice to know that Ms Dwyer has such an interest in what we do.  We appreciate all the help you can give us.

Council-appointed advisory committees

The City of Burlington has nine Council-appointed advisory committees that provide feedback and input to Council.

Burlington has always had a small group of citizens who make a point of being involved. In that regard we are fortunate.

Accessibility Advisory Committee
Agricultural and Rural Affairs Advisory Committee
Cycling Advisory Committee
Downtown Parking Advisory Committee
Heritage Burlington Advisory Committee
Inclusivity Advisory Committee
Integrated Transportation Advisory Committee
Seniors’ Advisory Committee

The Office of the City Clerk assists with recruitment to some of the following local boards, while others conduct their own recruitment process:
