To assist with Council decisions, Cobourg has set up a number of Advisory Committees.  These are chaired by a citizen but members include elected councilors.  Any questions or submissions should be made to Council and not to citizens on these committees.  If you are interested in participating, vacancies become available from time to time and are advertised in the newspapers and on the Town's web site.  Application forms are available at the town office at that time.

Note also:

Note: The list below is subject to a review - a revised list should be available by July 2019 (they are having a problem filling all the vacancies and some are being re-organized).
