Historique

The Committee on Works was established in 1872 as the Board of Commissioners of City Works, consisting of 6 aldermen. It replaced the Commission of Water Supply, Commission of Streets, the Internal Health Committee and the Committee of City Property. By 1907 the Board was renamed the Committee on City Works and consisted of the mayor, acting as chairman, and two aldermen. The committee was responsible for the city’s works and property, including sewers, streets, bridges, and water works. The City Engineer worked under the committee to supervise the repair and maintenance of public works. By 1931 the committee was referred to as the Committee on Works and consisted of the mayor, acting as chairman, and an alderman from each ward. The committee changed again in 1940 when it took over the responsibilities of the Camp Hill Cemetery Committee and the Committee on Public Parks, Gardens, and Common and so began to oversee the management of Camp Hill Cemetery, the Halifax Commons, the Public Gardens, and other city parks, except for Point Pleasant Park. The committee now consisted of six aldermen with the mayor as chairman. The Public Service Commission of Halifax took over responsiblity for waterworks in 1945. By 1964 the committee was expanded to include the mayor and seven aldermen and by 1994 to include the mayor and twelve aldermen. The committee was active until amalgamation in 1996.
