Council Committees Policy

This Policy provides a consistent approach to the establishment of Council Committees on which there is Councillor representation.

This policy governs the operation of Advisory Committees, Specific Purpose Committees, Strategic Project Committees and Working Groups.

Generally, the purpose of Council Committees is to provide advice on the development, implementation, monitoring, review and/or evaluation of programs or activities specified in the Knox Community Plan and Council Plan.
