What is Committee of the Whole (COTW)?


Since 2012, Altona Town Council has used the COTW concept for conducting its business and decision-making process. COTW is a committee that consists of all Council members. Instead of holding separate Standing Committee meetings, the regular meetings of the Works and Operations Committee, Finance and Administration Committee and Community and Social Development Committee are heard by the entire complement of Council members, including the Mayor. COTW meetings are open to the public and occur on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 3:30 p.m. 

The COTW format permits Council members to deal with complex issues in greater detail than would be possible in a regular Council meeting. Issues discussed at the COTW meeting are not be formally adopted at these meetings, but recommendations from these meetings are presented to a subsequent regular meeting of Council for official adoption.
