To assist with Council decisions, Cobourg has set up a number of Advisory Committees. These are chaired by a citizen but members include elected councilors. Any questions or submissions should be made to Council and not to citizens on these committees. If you are interested in participating, vacancies become available from time to time and are advertised in the newspaper and on the Town’s web site. Application forms are available at the town office at that time.
Note that because of the Covid-19 Crisis, no Committee meetings are being held.
- A resident may make a delegation to these committees and is allowed 10 minutes
- Residents (the public) may attend these committee meetings as observers and may raise a hand and, at the discretion of the chair, may make a comment. The main point is attending as an observer.
The list below is taken from minutes of each committee. There is currently no official list but one should be available at some point.
