The Downtown Facility and Field House (DFFH) Board is looking for a new member after a position opened up.

One of the previous board members had stepped down, as he knew he would not be able to serve the board in the properly when it came to time commitment. Currently, the board is running with six out of seven board members.

"Up until a couple of months ago we were operating with three board member and then we filled it out with four citizen appointees to bring it up to seven so we're sitting at six right now," explained City Councillor and DFFH Board Chair Brian Swanson. "We're functioning well right now, it's just that we'll get up to a full team when we add another person."

The board previously only had three members, but after they added four new citizen appointee positions they moved membership up to seven people.

The City of Moose Jaw began advertising for the position this past week and are currently accepting applications. Swanson described what kind of people they want on the board.

"Current members, there is quite a variety of people so I guess variety. Someone who has an interest in different aspects of the facility," he said. "There's the field house the curling rink the hockey rink, the bowl for events. [We want] someone who can meet a commitment when we meet twice a month. Interest in sports and cultural activities."
