Mark Caillier and Brandon Smith are no longer on the Keizer City Council.

The two are making up for gained time by joining more committees.

Caillier was appointed by Mayor Lore Christopher to the Volunteer Coordinating Committee (VCC), which recommends volunteers to various city committees.

In January, the VCC appointed Smith to one of two open positions on the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, a nomination that still needs to be confirmed by the current council.

During the Jan. 17 VCC meeting, Caillier and Smith were both appointed to the Stormwater Advisory Committee. They were the only two who applied for the two open seats. The nominations are being forwarded to council for approval.
