Mediation

The Community Dispute Resolution Committee (CDRC) provides a means in which minor disputes at the municipal level can be resolved without having to go to Court. Disputing parties appear before a trained mediator who works with the parties to develop a solution to the problem. The Court will refer appropriate cases to mediation.
