Section 355 Committees
Under the Local Government Act 1993 Section 355 Council is able to delegate some of its functions to a committee of Council. Council uses this delegation and appoints community people to manage its facilities or functions through a committee of management.
The committees provide a mechanism by which interested persons can have an active role in the provision / management of Council facilities or services. This provides a two fold benefit by giving protection to the committee operating under the banner of Council, and by providing Council with assistance in the carrying out of its functions. Memberships consist of a Councillor and community representatives.
There are presently 11 Section 355 Committees and 2 Boards of Management which are listed be below.
