Committees of Council

Committees of Council

 

Town Councillors are required to sit on a wide variety of committees in the community. Committee responsibilities are assigned as fairly as possible to share the time requirements and workload.

More than 20 committees require the attention and involvement of Councillors. Some committees meet monthly, some less often, and some on an as needed basis. In some cases, two or more Councillors may be members of certain committees.

Following the October 21 Municipal Election, members of Town Council met on October 29 for an organizational meeting where one item on the agenda included the discussion and assignment of Committees of Council. Councillors volunteered for committees of interest to them and the remaining committees were distributed in an equitable manner.

The assignments may be adjusted over time as the new team of Councillors settle into their roles. For now, these are the Committees of Council:
