GIAPC still looking for two commissioners

  • Jan. 14, 2008 7:00 p.m.

The Graham Island Advisory Planning Commission still has two empty seats, despite last month’s call for nominations. Secretary Michael Muller said the commission did not receive a single nomination by its deadline of Dec. 21. However, Tow Hill Road resident Chris Ashurst did fill out forms after the deadline and will now become the north-end representative. That leaves the commission still looking for someone to represent the central area (between Mayer Lake and Lawnhill) and the Lawnhill/Miller Creek area. Mr. Muller said the seats will be given to the first people who show interest in them and fill out the nomination forms. The commission is also lacking a chair, Mr. Muller said. The group’s next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 16 in Tlell.
