Our Office reviewed a complaint that notice of a Minor Variance Committee meeting was not provided. We found that, although notice of this particular meeting was provided, the Committee did not have its own procedure by-law. Because the Committee is a local board for the purpose of the open meeting provisions, it is required to pass its own procedure by-law, which provides for notice of meetings.
