Council Standing Committees

Six standing committees support the work of the Council of Commissioners. In accordance with Butte-Silver Bow Municipal Code 2.12.030, a committee on committees shall recommend all members of the standing committees. The committee on committees shall be composed of the council chairman-elect, vice-chairman-elect and another council member whose name is to be drawn from the names of the members of the incoming council. The committee on committees shall meet and recommend appointments to the standing committees. A report of its actions shall be filed with the clerk and recorder by December 30th of each even-numbered year.

The chair and vice chair of each committee are appointed by the Committee on Committee to a two (2) year term to execute those duties, and can be reappointed by the Committee on Committees for a second term for a maximum of four (4) years in succession.
