People wishing to contribute to effective management of land and water issues on the Coromandel are being urged to consider applying for a place on the local catchment liaison subcommittee.
The body is an advisory subcommittee of Waikato Regional Council’s catchment services committee and has direct input into how land and water issues are managed on the peninsula.
The council is now seeking nominations for a vacant community representative position on the subcommittee, the current term of which ends on 30 June 2014.
Nominees should have a knowledge of, or interest in, rivers and catchments, pest management and biodiversity, as well as an awareness of the increasing importance of improving land and water management in the region.
Ideally, the council is hoping to fill the vacancy with someone from the urban/community sector with good networks, and who is preferably based on the east coast of the peninsula. They should have an ability and willingness to engage with local communities on catchment management issues.
Daytime subcommittee meetings are held up to four times a year. Meeting and travel expenses are paid.
More information is available from Adele Bird on 07 859 0910 or by visiting www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/About-us/Our-council/Catchment-liaison-subcommittees
Nominations close at 4pm on Friday 26 October.
