The City of Charlottetown standing committees have been adjusted slightly due to three councillors being on leave from their City duties.
There are 11 standing committees with Council serving in the roles of Chair, Vice-Chair and Members at Large. The committees oversee City departments and report back to the whole Council with recommendations and resolutions for consideration.
The changes include a new chairperson for the Finance, Audit and Tendering Committee, the Economic Development, Tourism and Culture Committee, and the Water and Sewer Utility Committee. Other adjustments include new Vice-Chairs and Members-at-Large for various committees.
"These minor adjustments were necessary to ensure that the responsibilities of the three councillors who are currently on leave are covered off," said Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee. "The remaining members of Council are taking on the additional responsibilities and I want to thank them for doing so. The standing committees will be reviewed again as the status of those on leave changes."
The committee structure, which reflects the changes, is available on the City’s website, along with the existing terms of reference for each committee. The information is available at www.charlottetown.ca by clicking on the Mayor and Council button.
