Town of Cobourg Seeking Members for Property Standards Committee

At the beginning of 2023, Staff brought a report to Council on the creation of a comprehensive Committee of Adjustment Procedural By-law and a recommendation that the Committee cease being the Property Standards Committee and a new Terms of Reference be brought to Council for consideration.

Member Eligibility:
Applicants must be Cobourg residents and/or Taxpayers and must be over the age of 18.

Property Standards Committee members will receive a pier diem of $50 per meeting attended with the Chair of the Committee to receive $60 per meeting attended. The Town of Cobourg will recover the costs of the members honorarium for each meeting through the application fee provided by the appellant.

The Committee meets on an as needed basis based on appeals received to the Town of Cobourg.
