Utilising committees is one way Council engages local residents in its operations and decision making. There are three types of committees:
- Council advisory committees, whose membership may include experts, professionals, government employees, community representatives and Council staff, as well as Councillors
- Community committees, which are delegated by Council to perform certain functions, such as managing a public hall or other property
- Committees external to Council, which are attended by Councillors and / or Council staff on behalf of the community.
Council's advisory committees provide advice to Council on a range of issues and offer a valuable opportunity for information exchange with our community. Each committee has at least one councillor as a member as well as a range of other community representatives.
The committees are:
- Aboriginal Advisory Committee
- Audit, Risk and Improvement Committee
- Disability Inclusion Advisory Committee
- Coastal and Environmental Management Advisory Committee
- Heritage Advisory Committee
- Public Art Advisory Committee
- Climate Change Advisory Committee
