Committees Commissions Boards Authorities
Council has established several Committees, Commissions, Boards and Authorities to help conduct a large amount of City business. These bodies are established in accordance with the Municipal Government Act, and can be categorized as follows:
*Boards and Committees with upcoming Member at Large vacancies.
These are committees that exist due to legislative requirements. Although each of these committees is established by municipal by-law (or resolution) there are other statutory requirements that must be taken into consideration. Within the City of Camrose, these include: the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board, Assessment Review Board, Camrose Police Commission and Camrose Library Board.
Advisory Standing Committees
These committees are created by Council to provide advice or guidance on specific municipal initiatives. The City of Camrose has established several advisory standing committees including the Green Action Committee, Camrose Airport Commission, the Social Planning Advisory Committee and the Affordable Housing Committee.
Ad Hoc Committees
Ad Hoc committees serve a specific purpose for a predetermined length of time, or for the duration of a project. Once the task is complete, an ad hoc committee will disband. An example of an ad hoc committee is the Community Transportation Advisory Committee.
External Community Committees
