Opportunities for citizens to participate in municipal affairs
The Village of Kaslo Council has established several committees to assist Council in their decision-making process. Select Committees are established by council resolution, under the authority of the Community Charter, and their role is to consider or inquire into matters and to report their findings and opinion to Council.
The specific mandate for a committee is indicated in the Terms of Reference for the committee, along with the composition of the membership, voting rights, the duration of appointments, the meeting schedule and any reporting deadlines. Details about the staff resources available to assist the committee and applicable meeting procedures are also included in the Terms of Reference.
In addition to the above committees, Council appoints community members to serve on the local Board of Variance (which considers applications for relief from the requirements of the Land Use/Zoning bylaw in cases of hardship) and the RDCK’s Kaslo & Area D Economic Development Commission.
