At the Dec. 14 council meeting, the councillors were handed their various appointments.

The appointments designate members of council to oversee “portfolios” on municipal operations such as public works, committees within the community and area such as housing and land development, and external organizations or groups like the Chamber of Commerce or the Nechako Watershed Council.

The assignments are given out by Mayor Rob MacDougall, with consultation with Kevin Crook, the chief administrative officer.

Each councillor will attend meetings and report to council on their portfolio items.

Councillor Dave Birdi was given acting mayor duties in the absence of Mayor Rob MacDougall.

MacDougall himself will be taking on the seat on the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako, Northern Trust – PGRAC, Omineca Beetle Action Coalition, housing and land development, Nak’azdli service agreements, salary/labour contract negotiations, the community centre committee, forestry, and industry.

A complete list of council appointments will be posted on the website.
