The surest way to affect some change with how the City of Orillia operates, other than voting, is to get involved. To that end, the City has 9 vacancies of various committees that need filling. Those committees are: Active Transportation, Commemorative Awards, Farmers’ Market Advisory, Orillia Food Committee, the Orillia Sunshine Youth Senate and the Transit Advisory Committee.
There is an application to fill out. Generally, you have to be eligible to vote in Municipal elections, although some committees do allow for non-residents to participate. If you have any questions, call 705-329-2452.
Applications must be submitted by noon, January 12.
