KAMLOOPS - Get ready because the council remuneration citizen task force is hitting the streets to gather public input this month.

Seven members of the community will be gathering public thoughts on annual remuneration amounts for Mayor and Council during the exercise.

"We wanted to make this process easy for residents," task force chair Brant Hasanen stated in a press release. "Instead of residents attending a forum or input session, we're bringing the task force to them. The task force will attend several community events over the next few weeks to engage the public."

Following this collection of ideas, the task force will then use the information to produce a recommendation about remuneration amounts for the mayor and council for the city to consider in the fall of this year.

The task force can be found at:

Overlander Days at McDonald Park — Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m

Music in the Park at Riverside Park — Aug. 23 from 7 to 8:30 p.m 

Downtown Farmers market on St. Paul Street — Aug. 24 from 8 a.m. to noon 

Music in the Park at McDonald Park — Aug. 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Anyone who can't make it to the events can still have their say by mailing or dropping off written comments to City Hall at 7 Victoria Street West, Kamloops B.C.  V2V 1A2. Comments can also be faxed to 250-828-3578 or emailed to taskforce@kamloops.ca. Please use the salutation Attention: Council Remuneration Citizen Task Force.
