March Committee of the Whole review

Committee of the Whole (COW) met via zoom on Wednesday, March 10, 2021. COW meetings allow for council to dig deeper into topics, which then permits council meetings to flow with more understanding of the topics presented. Council now holds COW meetings the second Wednesday of every month, with public council meetings the first and third Wednesdays of every month.


Delegations, presentations and petitions are now a part of the committee of the whole meetings. This week the committee heard two presentations, one from the Parrsboro Playground Committee and one from the Cumberland Energy Authority.

An external report from the Cumberland Regional Library Board was received and discussed.

Turning to internal matters, two tax collection reports were received by the COW. Councillors then provided verbal updates on committees of council.

The next public council meeting will be March 17, 2021 at 6 p.m. A committee of the whole meeting will be held April 14, 2021 at 6 p.m. Formal minutes of the March 10 meeting will be available within 24 hours of the meeting. A Facebook live recording is available on the municipal Facebook page
