Committees of Council

Committees of Council include both members of Council and members of the public and are advisory in nature. Committees of Council do not make decisions but rather make recommendations to Council for consideration.

Recommendations from Committees of Council are sent to Committee of the Whole through a Committee Report. Any material can be brought directly to a Committee of Council, or can often be referred by Council for further review by the Committees.
