City seeks volunteer experts for committees

January 8, 2016 -

Are you interested in local history and heritage conservation in your community? Would you like to provide your input about housing and homelessness?  The City of Kingston is now seeking informed advice from committed Kingstonians interested in serving on a committee.

"Becoming a member of a committee offers residents the chance to volunteer their unique skills and knowledge to strengthen our shared sense of community," says John Bolognone, city clerk.

A total of seven positions are available with Heritage Kingston and one position is available with the housing and homelessness advisory committee. For more information about these committees, go to www.CityofKingston.ca/committees.

Newcomers with permanent resident status and who have lived in Kingston for at least a year are welcome to apply to volunteer on a committee, thanks to a recent change in the eligibility requirements. Applicants must also be 18 years or older and live or own property in Kingston.

Apply by Feb. 5 at 4:30 p.m. online at www.cityofkingston.ca/committees or at the city clerk's office at City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
