Advisory Committee

established January 1968 by Town Assembly

The Advisory Committee is made up of the chairpersons of all the standing committees, plus the town officers, the senior trustee, and the chair of the Board of Assessors. It acts as a coordinating committee and sets the agenda for the town meetings. The chairperson of the Advisory Committee, a town officer, is elected each year at the March meeting.

The Advisory Committee meets three weeks before town meetings, that is, the first Monday in January, March, June, and September. The committee also holds an annual “Advisory Retreat” to address inter-committee issues.

Regular Advisory Committee Meeting
1st Monday in January, March, June and September at  7:30 p.m.
Buzz Ware Village Center, Arden, DE.

Since the 1st Monday in September is a holiday, the meeting is for the following Tuesday.

This is our regularly scheduled meeting at which we set the agenda for the upcoming town meeting. We will also revisit unfinished topics from our Advisory Retreat. This may include Freedom of Information Act, posting of minutes, use of email, conflict of interest, how to handle conflicts between committees, contracts, updating the village website, putting the Village of Arden Handbook on-line, the founding documents for the Advisory Committee and its chair, and Marianne Cinaglia’s suggestion to increase participation with a mailed flyer.
