Sub Committees

The committee may appoint sub-committees to undertake specific tasks and report back to the group

Administration

The committee selects one member to act as the Managing Partner for the group.  The Managing Partner is responsible to employ the Clerk for the committee as well as to maintain all financial records and to ensure that meeting agendas, minutes and schedules are kept.  Currently the Village of Forestburg is acting as the Managing Partner for the FIP committee.  The duties of the FIP Clerk can be reviewed through Duties of FIP Clerk.

Funding

Prior to 2013 no projects were undertaken unless grant funding was available.  In 2013 it was determined that there was a need for ongoing sustainable funding from within our own membership.  As a result, FIP now develops a budget, which is approved by each member municipality, and a requisition is charged to each member.  These funds are utilized to pay the FIP clerk, general operating expenses, and specific costs related to ongoing operating costs for projects such as the regional SCADA system.
