CAC looking for new members

Have you ever wanted to have your voice heard in the city of Dunkirk? Now is the chance for those city residents. The Citizens’ Advis-ory Committee is in need of new members? Due to resignations and members failing to come to meetings, the CAC has four seats open.

“We only have eight, we need 12 (members),” member Danny McGill said.

Members Richard Gloss and Don Kaminski resigned in April. The most recent resignation came as Jim White resigned in November; Patricia Schanzlin-Hemenger also stepped down from her position on the board last fall.

“Anybody who lives in Dunkirk could apply,” member Donna Keith said. “Our meetings are open to the public and anyone who wants to attend is more than welcome.”

Interested applicants should drop off a letter of intent to the city clerk’s office to be placed in the CAC mailbox. All letters should be received by the first Friday of the month in order to be placed on that month’s agenda. The CAC meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Members are required to attend nine meetings each year.

Residents who drop off a letter of intent are welcome to attend the monthly meetings which are held at 6:30 p.m. in the city hall conference room. Any resident who has a concern in the city of Dunkirk is also welcome to attend the meetings and bring up their concerns.
