They include: Ethics Committee; Audit Committee; and Divisional Allocation Committee.Turning to work of the Council, she said the body is committed to providing a professional service that respects residents while being receptive, responsive and accountable.As it relates to cash, Mrs. Brown Burke said the Council will have to generate enough revenue to effectively carry out its responsibilities and provide the requisite services.She noted that focus will be placed on public education campaigns “so that citizens are seized with the importance of paying local rates and how they are used and understand that we will be unable to provide an improved service if we cannot pay for it.”By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporterlast_img read more
