In 1946 a Public Services Committee was established by county council as a special committee to negotiate a water supply contract with the Public Service Commission of Halifax. It operated as a special committee until a Public Services Committee was established as a standing committee in 1951 when the municipality's government underwent significant organizational changes. The new standing committee was responsible for reviewing and reporting to council on matters relating to public property, works, and services. Its sphere of responsibility included, but was not limited to, water works, sewers, lighting, harbours, docks, wharves, cranes, ferries, commons, roads, bridges, and halls and public libraries. The committee was active until about 1960 when the Public Works Committee was established to assume much of its reponsibilities.
