  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: General Councils
Councils in which the pope is represented by legates are, indeed, also representative of the whole teaching body of the Church, but the representation is not absolute or adequate, is no real concentration of its whole authority.
Councils over which the pope presides through his legates are not identified with himself in the same degree as the former.

 Catholic Encyclopedia: GENERAL COUNCILS   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Councils are legally convened assemblies of ecclesiastical dignitaries and theological experts for the purpose of discussing and regulating matters of church doctrine and discipline.
The council is, then, the assessor of the supreme teacher and judge sitting on the Chair of Peter by Divine appointment; its operation is essentially co-operation -- the common action of the members with their head -- and therefore necessarily rises or falls in value, according to the measure of its connection with the pope.
A council in opposition to the pope is not representative of the whole Church, for it neither represents the pope who opposes it, nor the absent bishops, who cannot act beyond the limits of their dioceses except through the pope.

 A Review of County Health Councils in Alabama

It was discovered that 48% of the counties currently had an existing health council, 18% had never attempted to organize a health council, 31% had organized a council at some point between 1979 and 1992, but were no longer active, and 3% of the counties were unsure a council ever existed.
The selected health councils were chosen on the basis of their county's population, council's start date, membership size, organizational goals, activities, future plans, and perceived effectiveness.

 ISAR - The Citizens Councils   (Site not responding. Last check: )
To be sure, the Councils and the Klan are not on speaking terms, but the aims are the same: the maintenance of segregation and the preservation of "the Southern way of Life." The Councils appeal to the better educated, more sophisticated Southern segregationist because their tactics are more subtle, more clever than Klan activities.
The Councils, as did the Klan, blossomed into full flower as a direct result of the Supreme Court's 17 May 1954 ruling on Brown vs. the Board of Education, the Court held that "separate but equal" school systems were outside the pale of constitutionality.
This is not a problem so long as the Councils are a force; but once the members feel that the reins of power are slipping from their grasp, the "uptown Klan" will be forced by temperament and circumstance to relocate itself in a less savory section of town.

 Advisory Councils
The councils are the recognized bodies representing their communities and to which the district has to listen but not necessarily agree and follow through.
And councils are wise to have long-range planning committees that are ready with specifics and sketches, discussed with the park supervisor and area or regional manager, park neighbors, community leaders/stakeholders, and the alderman well before the budget rounds start.
Councils that take in more than a few dollars are well advised to set up their own account and/or spend the money on things for their park or risk their money being "swept up" by the Park District.

Leaders say an ageing population and tighter regulation of waste disposal is putting extra pressure on councils and those receiving the minimum grant increase would face "very real difficulties" in balancing the books.

Conservative local government spokesman Eric Pickles said council tax had "rocketed" since Labour came to power in 1997, rising by 84% to £1,268 for a band D property this year.
