No response to call for nominations

  • Dec. 13, 2004 9:00 a.m.

The Graham Island Advisory Planning Commission will be re-issuing a call for nominations in the new year after its most recent attempt failed to attract a single candidate.
Secretary Brigid Cumming said the GIAPC, which advises the regional district on land use and development issues, was looking for three commissioners, one from the rural area north of Mayer Lake, one from between Mayer Lake and Lawn Hill, and one form the Lawn Hill and Miller Creek area.
Nominations closed on Dec. 10, but Ms Cumming said she received absolutely no responses.
That means the three commissioners who currently represent those areas – Paul Melney, Ralph Leach and Michael Muller – will continue on, Ms Cumming said.
“In the absence of replacement appointees, they just keep serving,” she said.
The GIAPC decided that it will re-do the call for nominations in a newsletter which should come out some time in January, she said. That round of nominations will close at the end of January.
