The City is once again reaching out to the public in hopes of filling several vacant volunteer positions on various council advisory committees.
"Hopefully we get a better uptake," said Mayor Peter Milobar.
Kamloops City Council annually appoints councillors and community members into voluntary positions on committees, commissions and boards.
A push by the City in December called for applicants to fill eight positions - three on the Arts Commission, two on the Heritage Commission, two on the Parks and Recreation Committee and one on the Sister City Advisory Committee.
After only three applications were received for the eight positions, administration recommended reposting the positions to be filled by mid-February.
Council agreed that more time was needed.
"We have eight vacancies on 44 committees," Milobar said.
"Put your name forward, it would be appreciated."
Those interested may submit a cover letter and resume including relevant background and interest to Nicole Beauregard, Active Living Coordinator, by email or by calling 250-828-2653. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 15.
