Committees of Council

The Town has formed multiple Committees of Council to assist in shaping our community's future. The purpose of the Committees is to provide advice and recommendations to Council on a variety of issues.

Each Committee will consist of at least one representative of Town Council, Town staff as required, and volunteer citizens from Trenton. Some committees may also include members from local groups/organizations, the Trenton business community or subject matter experts. Some Committees have additional requirements and qualification criteria such as skills and experience which is established in the Terms of Reference (table below).

We encourage those interested to get involved and contribute to our community's growth and success!
