In March 2010, Council established the Governance Review Select Committee to review all existing Committees, Commissions and Boards.
This review will allow the Committee to make recommendations to council regarding the effectiveness and purpose of various committees, identify if there are any overlaps between committees and commissions, and review the membership appointment processes and requirements for City Staff support. The information provided in the questionnaire will be considered in the review process and the Governance Review Select Committee will present their recommendations to Council in January 2011.
There are four types of Committees:
Advisory Committee – is a committee created by resolution of Council and formed of members of the public to provide advice to Council on a specified subject.
Select Committee – is a task force established by resolution of Council pursuant to section 142 of the Community Charter. Select committees exist only as long as there is work to be done relative to the matters for which it was formed. Once a select committee’s work is done it is disbanded.
Standing Committee – is a committee established by the Mayor pursuant to section 141 of the Community Charter. A standing committee is established when the Mayor considers a matter better dealt with by a committee in which the Mayor appoints the members.
Statutory Committee – means committees, commissions and boards established pursuant to a specific enabling statute which authorizes them to operate at “arms-length” on behalf of, or in cooperation with the City.
The Members of the Governance Review Select Committee are as follows:
Councillor Stolz – Chair
Walter Babicz, Manager Legislative Services
Kathleen Soltis, Director Corporate Services
