Town of High River Seeking Applicants for Board and Committee Vacancies

HIGH RIVER, AB: The Town of High River is currently looking for residents that are interested in contributing to the overall success of the community to submit applications to fill vacancies on several boards and committees.

Volunteering to sit on a municipal board or committee is a great way for residents to make a difference in the community. Boards and committees cover a wide range of topics providing an opportunity for residents to share their knowledge, experience and ideas with the town.

The current vacancies are as follows:

  • Community Vitality Advisory Committee (3 positions)
  • High River Arts and Culture Committee (3 positions)

  • High River Policing Committee (5 positions)
  • Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB, 1 position)

Boards and committees are regularly engaged as a resource for Town of High River projects, or may lead projects on their own.

Term length can range from one to three years depending on the vacancy that is open. Time commitments vary depending on the board and committee.  For example, some boards and committees only meet when required, whereas others meet on a monthly basis for approximately three to four hours.

If you are interested in applying, all board and committee descriptions, governing bylaws and application forms can be found on the Town website at www.highriver.ca under the Town Hall then Boards & Committees menu.

Applications will be accepted and reviewed throughout July and August and appointments will be made at the Town’s Annual Organizational Meeting on October 23, 2017 when the new council is sworn in.
