Policy: Council Appointments to Agencies, Boards and Committees

Recruitment for agencies, boards, commissions, and committees of the City of Windsor has concluded. Stay updated by following our social media pages and regularly checking this site for announcements regarding future recruitment opportunities.

Coordinator Service

The City Clerk (or designates appointed by the City Clerk) functions as the coordinator of most committees, providing clerical service and a degree of administrative support, which include notification of meetings, official correspondence and mailings.

Administrative resources assigned to the committee are not under the direction of the committee but are available as a resource to provide for an official record of decisions of the committee to ensure that these decisions are communicated to City Council where appropriate. The coordinator is appointed to record the decisions of the committee and not to provide a verbatim transcript of the meetings.

Mandate of Committee

The mandate of the individual Board, Committee or Commission is generally prescribed in the statute for statutory bodies, or in City Council resolutions. If there is uncertainty as to the role of the committee, the coordinator should be consulted to provide copies of the official authority.

With the exception of several management committees such as the Windsor Detroit Tunnel Corporation, committees are advisory only, i.e. they provide recommendations to City Council on policies applicable to a specific function. This is important to note, because under the present form of local government, administrative staff are responsible to City Council through the Chief Administrative Officer, and not responsible to the committee or its members for the operation of a particular function.

Notice to Correspondents

The personal information contained in your correspondence to Windsor City Council or its committees is collected under the Municipal Act, 2001. Any personal information you choose to disclose in your correspondence will be used to receive your views on the relevant issue(s) to enable the City to make its decision on the matter. This information will become part of the public record, unless you expressly request the removal of your personal identity information. Questions about the collection of this information may be directed to the City Clerk's office at (519) 255-6211.
