Council Committees

The Town of White City conducts its business through a committee structure. There is one main committee of council: the Committee of the Whole. The purpose of the Committee of the Whole (the committee) is the to be the primary forum for policy debate and public input on items within the council’s area of responsibility. The committee provides an opportunity for all members of council to participate in discussion and debate that results in final recommendations to council. The committee is to consider the financial, risk and operational impact of policies, programs and actions, and to recommend to council the adjustments required to make the best use of the town’s resources.

Once the committee has considered information from town staff and advisory groups, a recommended course of action is prepared for council to consider. The recommendation is forwarded to all of council for an official decision at a regular or special council meeting.
