Committees New Council Takes Shape

Newly-elected and re-elected Councillors allocated to committees

At the Annual Council meeting last night (23rd May 2007), after the Mayor-making ceremony and related activities, the customary Joint Meeting of Committees was held to appoint Members to the Council's various committees.
