which have decision-making powers and report to full
Council. Membership is decided at Annual Council. Further details about the responsibilities of each
Regulatory Committee are available in

Committee meetings are scheduled as needed and the public or any
petitioners for or against an application are welcome, but will be
asked to leave the room during deliberations.
