The purpose of the Community Dispute Resolution Committee (CDRD) is to provide a flexible and open forum that enables citizens to resolve minor problems without legal expense and without going to court. Some of the complaints handled by the Committee could include:
A private and confidential mediation session is set up between disputing parties. They appear before the Committee, who are trained mediators that will work with them to develop a solution to the problem.

How does one contact the Committee? Residents should go to the Municipal Court and file a complaint with the Court Clerk. Cases are then referred to the CDRC by the Municipal Judge or the Court Administrator.
