City of Burnaby Councillor Sav Dhaliwal will continue to hold more roles other than just his job in municipal politics. 

Dhaliwal has been acclaimed as chair of the Metro Vancouver Board of Directors for a fourth consecutive term. He's joined by City of North Vancouver Mayor Linda Buchanan, who also will be serving her fourth consecutive term as vice-chair. 

The pair will also assume the roles in the same positions for the Greater Vancouver Sewerage Drainage District, the Greater Vancouver Water District and the Metro Vancouver Housing Corporation. 

According to a release sent by the regional authority, directors are elected officials from 21 municipalities, one treaty First Nation and one electoral area. 

The Metro Vancouver board of directors elect a chair and vice-chair annually for one-year terms. 

Directors are also appointed by their respective councils, with the number of directors from each jurisdiction reflecting that area's population. 

One vote is allocated for every 20,000 people in their communities, to a maximum of five votes. 

The release adds that Dhaliwal is set to appoint directors to Metro Vancouver's standing communities, who are responsible for considering priorities, policies and activities for the organization and providing recommendations to the board.
