Here's How Brampton Residents Can Serve Their City
You may think that Brampton city councillors have to do the bulk of the work around City Hall, and for the most part that is true. They're the people who were elected to serve in their roles, so council and major committees such as planning and budget fall under their purview.
But that doesn't mean citizens can't take part in the various aspects of running the city.
According to the City of Brampton in this press release, they are seeking citizens who are interested in various appointments for the 2018-2022 term of council, ending in November
2022, or until a successor is appointed.
Here are the committees that are open for Bramptonians to apply:
Citizen-based Advisory Committee
Accessibility Advisory Committee
Age-Friendly Brampton Advisory Committee (requires three adults (55+) and
three persons aged 15-24)
Brampton Community Safety Advisory Committee (requires four citizen
representatives, one from each of the four quadrants of the City as divided by
Highway 410 and Queen Street)
Brampton Heritage Board
Brampton School Traffic Safety Council
