Civic committee members named

Mayor says the volunteers' contribution is 'extremely valuable.'

Surrey has named its public members to civic committees.

As occurs on an annual basis, city council has selected public volunteers to serve on several civic committees.

These committees advise council on a variety of topics ranging from heritage to parks to agriculture. Those recommendations are usually adopted by council and often end up in policy or bylaw changes.

Mayor Dianne Watts said the volunteers are a crucial part of the government process.

“All of those committees are so key to the functioning of how the city works,” Watts said. “Their contribution is extremely valuable.”

The public members of the committee for 2011 are:
