Council committees generally fall into two categories:
- Standing Council Committees: A permanent council committee
- Ad Hoc Committee: A short-term committee established to serve a specific purpose
How are members selected?
Applications are reviewed and presented to Clearwater County Council during the annual Organizational Meeting, where Council appoints the most qualified individuals. Clearwater County's Committees Bylaw provides additional information about the appointment process of public members to Boards and Committees.
What if I am not the successful applicant?
Clearwater County appreciates the interest of all applicants. Following the Organizational Meeting, Administration will notify applicants with respect to the status of their application.
