Boards and Committees

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!
