Isle of Anglesey CC has been forced into a climb down after being told to put its house in order or be taken over by the Welsh Assembly or another authority.
The Assembly's local government minister Edwina Hart visited the council in a bid to settle a long-running dispute over the political balance of its eight-strong executive committee.
The cabinet was constructed along non-party political lines after elections in 1999, but this structure was recently criticised by members from three minority groups who said it lacked scrutiny.
The minister said cabinet membership could continue on a non-political basis, but the chairs of the six scrutiny committees and both chairs and vice-chairs of audit and appeals committees should go to minority groups.
The proposals have been accepted unanimously by the full council.
