What is a Committee, Board or Task Force?
Committees, Boards and Task Forces (generally referred to as committees) are created by council to assist them with making important decisions and provide opportunities for public participation in community matters. These committees consist of volunteers appointed by council and bring local knowledge, experience and expertise to help ensure Whistler's continued success as we move toward a sustainable future, outlined in our Whistler2020 strategic plan.
Committees are advisory in nature and regular meetings are open to the public, unless the topic relates to a subject included in Section 90 of the Community Charter.
Topics for discussion at committee meetings will be on the agenda and during the meeting the committee's recommendations are recorded in the minutes. The minutes are adopted by the committee usually at their next meeting and then included in a council meeting package for council's approval.
How can I learn more about Whistler's committees, boards and task forces?
- Agendas are posted on the website and at muncipal hall, at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting.
- Minutes are posted on the website after they are adopted by the committee.
- Adopted committee minutes are included in a regular council meeting package for council to approve.
