The Blue Mountains Abandoned Orchard Advisory Committee’s current composition is:
- One member of Council
- Three members of the Public
The Town has the authority to designate an orchard abandoned and declare it as noxious weeds. The authority is provided under the Weed Control Act.
The members of the Town's Abandoned Orchard Advisory Committee provide their expert opinion to the Municipal Weed Inspector Staff as to whether the abandoned orchard is indeed infected with pests.
