Those are highlights from a list of committee appointments made by Mayor Peter Milobar that will be approved by council on Tuesday.

Coun. Denis Walsh, back for another term on council after sitting out the last term, will sit on the Citizen Satisfaction Committee along with returning councillor Arjun Singh, who has focused heavily on community engagement during his time on council.

Walsh will also chair the Community and Council Services Committee, which vets many proposals before they go to council for consideration. He’ll also serve as council’s liaison with the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, sit on the Social Planning Council and represent council on the Tourism Kamloops Board and Arts Commission.

Rookie councillor Dieter Dudy will sit on the Community and Council Services Committee along with Walsh, Coun. Donovan Cavers and Coun. Marg Spina. He’s also appointed to the Fraser Basin Council, and will be on the Community Plan Advisory Committee with Singh, as well as the Police Committee and the Parcel Tax Roll Review Panel, and will chair the Sister City Advisory Committee.

Milobar will remain on the Tranquille Road Beautification/Enhancement and Gateway Task Force formerly and be joined by Coun. Tina Lange, who replaces Nelly Dever, who was defeated in the Nov. 15 election.

Coun. Pat Wallace will chair the Tournament Capital Committee.

There are 31 committees in all.
