The Committee completes its work through an annual pre-budget submission and an annual issues note, both of which are submitteed to Regional Council. In addition, the Committee produces a Municipal Budget Report Card.
Current issues that are of importance to the Municipal Affairs Committee are listed in the Committee's work plan.
