A corrected version of the story is below:

District council has named three members to the new Sooke Fire Commission.

The three include Kenneth Ebbs-Canavan, Cameron MacIntyre and Murray Lambert.

The commission, created last fall, oversees the long-term planning of the fire department.

Fire department operations will remain with the fire chief.

Under the B.C. Community Charter, a commission can administer and operate a municipal service, including the management of budgets without having to come to council to expend funds.

Commission members receive an annual honourarium of $2,500.
