Waterville Airport sign
Three citizens were appointed to the Waterville Airport Relocation Project Steering Committee May 6.
Paul Easson was appointed as the aviation representative and Emile Fournier and Shane Buchan are two non-aviation citizen appointees.
Coun. Jim Winsor said they were looking for appointees to represent the county geographically as well, one each from the eastern, central and western portions of the municipality. Easson and Buchan are both from the central area and Fournier is from the west.
Coun. Pauline Raven’s suggestion to leave one seat vacant in order to find someone from the east or changing one of the appointees in favour of an aviator from the eastern end of the county was rejected.
The appointments are two-year terms. Since it’s an ad hoc committee, on review of council, changes could be forthcoming and the time period could be adjusted.
