Committees in Need of Passionate Volunteers
In an attempt to streamline committees the City of Florence is combining several of the committees into larger, more inclusive committees. The airport and transit committees will be combined to make a larger Transportation committee that will take into account public transportation, bike and pedestrian, air and rail. The council will officially make the changes during its January meeting. In the meantime, City recorder Kelli Weese is rounding up citizens interested in serving on the new committees. Several of the committees are in need of more volunteers including the Public Arts Committee. The city is seeking individuals that have a passion about the arts and want to contribute. The committee is currently involved in two large scale projects for 2019. Applications for this committee and others can be found at ci.florence.or.us
Florence City Council approved the new committees during its November 5th meetings. The council will approve new committee members in January.
