A Council committee is a committee, commission, board or other body established by Council under the Municipal Government Act. Council committees act in an advisory capacity to Council. Some committees may fill a quasi-judicial role, which means that the committee has the authority to make decisions / judgments as provided for in the Municipal Government Act.
Standing Committees of Council:
- Committee of the Whole
- Subdivision and Development Authority
- Inter-municipal Subdivision and Development Appeal Board
- Assessment Review Board
- Milk River Municipal Emergency Managment Committee
There are also a number of other “ad hoc” committees of Council that individuals may want to volunteer for. The successful operation of a municipality, and of course a committee, depends greatly on its volunteers. Each fall citizens will have an opportunity to apply to sit on a Standing Committee of Council. Join in the process!
