Presentations and Delegations
In order to request a delegation or presentation at a Regular Council Meeting, please submit a cover letter addressed to the Corporate Officer to firstname.lastname@example.org. The letter should include the following:
- Your name or the name of the presenter
- Address and contact information
- Name of the organization you are representing, if applicable
- The date when you wish to attend
- Detailed synopsis of your subject
- Whether you intend to use a PowerPoint presentation
If you intend to use a PowerPoint presentation, please attach a PDF copy of your slides with your cover letter at the time of your request.
Requests must be received at least one month before your requested Council date.
Once received, submissions will be reviewed and considered. You will be contacted by the Council Coordinator if your presentation is to be scheduled for a future Council date. Please note that not all requests will be approved for this format but you will be informed of other opportunities to have your information brought to Council's attention.
Each approved delegation is allotted five minutes to speak and present.
Public Question and Answer Period
There is also a public question and answer period at the start of every Regular Council Meeting. Members of the public can ask a question to Council at this time.
Public Hearings are required according to the Local Government Act to allow the public to make representations to Council regarding municipal official community plans, zoning amendment bylaws and or an early termination of a land use contract bylaw.
For all Public Hearings, each speaker must commence remarks by clearly stating your name and address.
Procedural rules for the conduct of the Public Hearings are set at the start of the Public Hearing.
Your only opportunity to comment on the proposed Bylaw is during the Public Hearing, as Council is not permitted to receive further submissions once it has closed the Public Hearing. All submissions will form part of the public record.
For more details relating to Public Hearings, please see the Rezoning Review Process.
Please see Writing to Council for information on submitting written comments for a Public Hearing.
