THOMAS KERVIN PHOTO Council has finalized committee appointments in Dec. 11 meeting.

Port Hardy council approves shuffle in committee appointments

Council committee appointments were finalized by an approved motion Dec. 11 meeting.

Port Hardy council made the decision to switch up committee appointments last council meeting.

A recent shuffle to committee appointments was made at the Port Hardy Dec. 11 council meeting when mayor Dennis Dugas said the district wanted to “keep consistency, especially with coun. (Treena) Smith. What happens is that she wasn’t on the Tourism Advisory Committee but she is on the Vancouver Island North Advisory Committee so we want to keep them together.”

Council motioned the switch for Smith shortly after the meeting began. They first had to rescind her appointment from Mount Waddington Table of Partners: Wellness First Committee and then passed another motion to appoint her to the Tourism Advisory Committee.

In the shuffle, coun. Leightan Wishart no longer sits on the Tourism Advisory Committee, having been rescinded from the appointment. However, he was appointed to the Poverty Pilot Program after motioning for Smith to be rescinded.

According to the appointments listed in an agenda package, see below for council appointments:
