He said that an extraordinary meeting of Ventspils City Council would be convened Tuesday afternoon to appoint a new council representative on the board of Ventspils Freeport Authority.

Currently, the board of the Ventspils Freeport Authority is made up of eight members - four representatives of Ventspils City Council, who are appointed and dismissed by the municipality, and four representatives of ministries.
