Council Committees

City of Red Deer Council Committees are your chance to shape municipal policy. Get involved in the decision-making process at City Hall – apply to volunteer for a committee!

What are Council Committees?

Council committees make recommendations and give advice to City Council. Some committees even act in a "quasi-judicial" role – they have the authority to make decisions and judgements for the City.

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 Council Committees Chosen?

Council Committee members are chosen throughout the year – take a look at our current open positions. A nomination committee reviews all applications, and makes recommendations to City Council. City Council makes the final decision on all committee appointments.

Some committee positions require specific expertise relevant to the issues the committee deals with. Others only require time, dedication, and desire to give back to the community.
