Cobourg Introduces Council Standing Committee Recap eNewsletter

In Local

The Town of Cobourg Clerk’s Department is pleased to introduce a new informational Council electronic newsletter (eNewsletter), the Council Standing Committee Recap.

In January, the Town of Cobourg transitioned to a standing committee structure of governance.

Council now has four Standing Committees, each aligned with municipal divisions and overall priorities and policy decisions. Motions and recommendations from the Standing Committee
Meeting are taken to the Regular Council meeting at the end of the month for final review and approval. With the introduction of the Council Standing Committee Recap, the Municipal Clerk
hopes to educate and engage the community on matters being considered by Council.

“Transparent governance involves raising greater awareness about the business of the Town of Cobourg so that the members of our community have the tools and information they require
to become active citizens.” Says Brent Larmer, Municipal Clerk and Director of Legislative Services.

“Through the recording of all Council meetings and improved communications practices we are making Council deliberations more accessible to all members of the public.”

The Council Standing Committee Recap will be issued out monthly following the Town of Cobourg Standing Committee meetings and will provide a summary of items being discussed
by each Committee. The timing of the eNewsletter will provide readers with approximately two weeks to review the subject matter before Council considers them for final approval at the
Regular Council meeting. Giving residents advance notice to address Council at the Regular Council meeting should they wish to speak to a specific matter or have the item extracted for
Council’s further consideration.

The eNewsletter will be emailed monthly to the Town of Cobourg corporate newsletter distribution list. The newsletter will also be available on the Mayor and Council website monthly
and printed copies can be made available at the Clerk’s department upon request.
