Citizens urged to Consider Serving on HRM Committees

There are many citizens in HRM who want to give something back to their community and I can think of no greater way than to serve on a municipal board, commission or committee.

Currently, there are vacancies on the following committees:

• Advisory Committee for Persons with Disabilities

• Community & Race Relations Advisory Committee
