On another SA forum, Lisa Saxby wrote:

"I absolutely agree with you about a structure like this! I feel that council sits on too many committees. I don't think there is much to gain with them being there. (There are some like CRB and AUMA, etc where participation is required) I think that the Chairs of these various committees could send their agenda to council ahead of their meeting for info purposes, and if there is some council input required it can be sent to the Chair. Then send the minutes to Council afterwards. Every month or two they can do a quick overview presentation to council. I would plan these presentations outside of the regular council meeting time."

My take...

I agree wholeheartedly. This makes sense and is completely workable. It allows the committee to conduct their work without direct Council influence, reduces the likelihood of a Council 'agenda' being advanced in the committee, and yet provides Council with a full understanding of issues both before and after deliberation.

The discussion centered on whether a Councillor should be able to vote on matters related to committees they are assigned to. Those Councillors are usually the most informed about the committee's work. To refuse them the opportunity to vote would remove critical and timely input of deliberations which they are knowledgable of. I see no conflict in those votes.

Being a council requires a lot of obligations. As an old saying goes, "With great power comes great responsibilities." It is important for the committee to be fair and just at all cost. That is their sole purpose in this organization. I am proud to see the ongoing progress of your organization!
