“As a new Council, we recognize the tremendous expertise and enthusiasm that exists in the community. By participating on a Municipal committee, residents and business leaders have the opportunity to directly inform Municipal Council’s deliberations and decision-making. We are very hopeful that many residents, both new and seasoned, will step up,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.
Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman noted “Each Committee will determine their respective leadership and meeting schedule, in order to be responsive to the needs and objectives of those serving on each Committee”.
Council has renewed or established Terms of Reference that highlight the purpose of each Committee and define their structure. All the Terms of Reference and the application forms are available here.
