“It’s not in any way intended to diminish the work of this committee over the years,” Cr Brown said.

Ms Brown said community panel, bound to less council formality than the former committee, will be set up in its place with the same membership.

Cr Brown was on the committee and will now participate on the community panel.

Councillor Mikaela Power was not present at the meeting.
