Possible additional responsibilities of community boards

  • Undertaking any other responsibilities that are delegated to them by the council or are prescribed by Order in Council.
  • Preparing an annual submission to the council for expenditure within the community.
  • Formally participating in any relevant consultative processes with the local community and/or other organisations.
  • Representing the views and position of the community board to external parties, where delegated to do so, and with a clear understanding that only formal community board decisions can commit the community board to any particular course of action (and then only in matters where the community board is delegated to act).
  • Participating, as needed, in the setting and monitoring of council policies, budgets, strategies and service delivery through annual and long-term planning processes.
