As prioritized in Council’s 2013 Strategic Plan staff brought forward for Council’s review a revised committee system. At the March 24, 2014 Committee of the Whole meeting Council reviewed a proposed new Committee Structure which involved creating three new committees (Sustainable Land Use Select Committee, Social Sustainability Select Committee and Heritage Select Committee) and principles for Terms of Reference. Following that meeting staff distributed, by mail, an information brochure on the proposed committee structure asking the community for volunteers.
Council, at its June 2, 2014 Regular Council Meeting, accepted Terms of Reference for the Heritage Select Committee, the Social Sustainability Select Committee and the Sustainable Land Use Committee. Each committee shall consist of up to seven (minimum five) voting members as well as up to twenty non-voting electronic participants.
Voting Select Committee members shall be appointed by Council and will be comprised of a minimum of five (5) and up to seven (7) community representatives (both resident and non-resident property owners).
Non-Voting Electronic Committee Members
The District will appoint up to twenty Electronic Participants to participate in all three committees (Sustainable Land Use Select Committee, Social Sustainability Select Committee and Heritage Committee). These E-Participants may, at their discretion, provide input to the Committees on specific issues that the Committees are addressing. The E-Participants will receive agendas and shall provide any comments they may wish to make to the Voting Committee for consideration at their meetings.
E-participants shall be appointed by Council and may wish to participate in all or only some of the items the committee is working on through email correspondence. E-Participants shall report back via the Corporate Officer.
