Councillors to chair committees

Two Well­ington County councillors were elected chairman of parts of their committees last month.
Brad Whitcombe won elec­tion as chairman of the library board, which is a part of the information, heritage, and seni­ors committee of county coun­cil. He was already chairman of that county committee.
Councillor Walter Trachsel announced Jan. 31 he was elec­ted chair­man of the county’s land division committee.
Trachsel, already chairman of the county planning commit­tee, said when he gave his re­port that since the land division committee is a separate body with statutory authority, the chairman of that committee must be elected.
