ESTEVAN - Estevan city council has determined which members will be part of various committees and organizations in the community for 2023.
The committee list was brought forward at Monday night’s meeting, several weeks earlier than normal. Typically it is released in November or December. Mayor Roy Ludwig noted they did it early this year because many of these organizations are finalizing their board members now.
Ludwig will sit on the economic development board, the emergency management organization, the Estevan board of police commissioners, the Estevan CP Rail community advisory panel, the Estevan Housing Authority, the RM of Estevan liaison committee and the Southern Coal Transition Committee.
Councillor Lindsay Clark will be part of the board of management for the Business Improvement District, the RM of Estevan liaison committee, the SMILE Services board and the Southeast Transportation Planning Committee.
Councillor Rebecca Foord is to be part of the Estevan board of police commissioners, the Estevan Exhibition Association board, the Regional Water Association, the RM of Estevan liaison committee and the Southeast Air Shed Association.
Councillor Travis Frank’s committee responsibilities include the Creighton Lodge management committee, the Estevan Arts Council board, the Souris Valley Theatre board and the Woodlawn Regional Park Authority.
Councillor Tony Sernick will be part of the economic development board, the Estevan board of police commissioners, the Estevan Bruins’ board and the Southern Coal Transition Committee.
Veroba’s boards will include the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum, the Estevan Public Library board, the Southeast Regional Library board, the Souris Valley Museum board and the St. Joseph’s Hospital board.
Councillor Kirsten Walliser will be on the airport liaison committee, the Estevan Humane Society board, the Estevan Curling Club board and the Woodlawn Regional Park Authority.
