Appearing Before Council Print Article Font Size
Regular Open Council meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of the month in the Council Chambers of Town Hall and are open to the public. Fill out the application form HERE.

The first Regular Meeting of the month will begin at 7:00 p.m. and the second Regular Meeting of the month shall begin at 1:15 p.m. Please refer to the Legislative Services Department or the Town website, as this schedule may be subject to change throughout the year.

All delegations requesting permission to appear before Council or Standing Committee on Finance must submit a written request to the Legislative Services Department, Manager of Legislative Services, to address the members of Council, including a written brief outlining their intended presentation.

Any request to appear before Council or Standing Committee on Finance shall be received, in writing, prior to 1:00 p.m. on the Wednesday preceding the meeting in order to be placed as a new matter on the Council or Committee agenda. The number of delegations on any Council or Committee agenda will be limited to two (2).

All delegations shall be afforded 15 minutes to make their presentation and shall be restricted to the topic as included on their written submission.

Where a delegation has addressed Council on a particular issue, if a subsequent request is received from the same delegation to address Council on the same issue, and no new significant information is being provided, the Manager of Legislative Services will be granted the authority to not place the item on the Agenda, but will circulate the request under separate cover as an item of general information.

Delegations concerning a bylaw where a Public Hearing has been held will not be permitted.
If you are on the agenda to appear as a delegation at a Council or Standing Committee on Finance meeting, please advise the Manager of Legislative Services prior to the start of the meeting that you are in attendance, and you will be called upon when it is time to make your presentation to Council.
