The Municipal Council meets every Monday evening (except during the months of July and August) at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the 3rd floor, east wing of Victoria Hall, 55 King Street West, Cobourg. One meeting is held in July and in August and special meetings may be called throughout the year. Council meetings alternate on a weekly basis between the formal Council session and a Committee of the Whole meeting where the entire Council meets in a more informal session to discuss municipal business. All decisions made at a Committee of the Whole meeting must be ratified at a regular Council meeting. A complete Council meeting schedule is available from the Municipal Clerk's Office in Victoria Hall. Agendas for Council meetings are posted on the website and on the bulletin board in the foyer of Victoria Hall.

The Cobourg Municipal Council regularly appoints local citizens to serve on various advisory committees and local boards. These committees and boards have responsibility for providing advice and recommendations to Council regarding municipal services and facilities. In some cases, a local board may have specific responsibility for providing a service to the community, such as the Cobourg Public Library Board.

A list of the various committees and boards follows:

  • West Northumberland Community Safety Association
  • Cobourg Civic and Community Accessibility Committee
  • Cobourg Community Awards Committee
  • Cobourg Committee of Adjustment
  • Cobourg Downtown Business Improvement Area Board of Management
  • Cobourg Economic Development Advisory Committee
  • Cobourg Environmental Advisory Committee
  • Cobourg Heritage Committee
  • Cobourg Parking Advisory Committee
  • Cobourg Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee
  • Cobourg Planning Advisory Committee
  • Cobourg Public Library Board
  • Cobourg Seniors Advisory Committee

From time to time special or ad hoc committees are also appointed by Council for special projects or functions. Information regarding the responsibilities of the various committees and boards and eligibility requirements may be obtained from the Municipal Clerk's Office in Victoria Hall.
