Committees and commissions
Municipal committees are advisory in nature and have no decision-making authority. They are created by the Town to examine certain municipal matters and requests. They give citizens, elected representatives and civil servants the opportunity to exchange ideas and draw up recommendations which will be submitted to the municipal council. The frequency of meetings and the number of members vary from one committee to the next.
