Town of NOTL seeking citizen advisory board members
NOTL Municipal Offices

Looking to contribute to Niagara-on-the-Lake in a productive and positive way?

The Town of NOTL is looking for dedicated residents to join its committees and boards for the 2019-2022 period.

Potential members have until 4 p.m. Jan. 17 to hand in completed applications.

The Town is seeking members of the general public who live, work or own a business in the municipality. Residents with a shared interest in improving and maintaining the standards set in place by the Town are ideal candidates.

The majority of board members work on a volunteer basis and are expected to attend meetings once a month.

Peter Todd, town clerk for NOTL, says the members contribute to the development of policies, programs and initiatives that will enhance quality of life for the municipality. “The Town can benefit greatly from citizen volunteer’s expertise, enthusiasm and civic pride.”

While some committees are mandatory by legislation, Todd says they are all valuable. Some of the specifics of the boards have changed over the years, but he says they have been used by the Town for decades.

“Likely since the incorporation of the Town.”

All boards and committees aim to create a healthy community for residents and visitors by advising on areas of inclusion, community wellness, licensing, urban design and transportation, to name a few.

A full list of committees and boards can be found on the NOTL town website.
