Utilising committees is one way Council engages local residents in its operations and decision making. There are three types of committees:

  • 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.
