Council, Committee and Board Information

How to Make a Deputation to Council

To speak at a meeting of Council or Committee of the Whole, you must complete a Deputation Form and submit it to the Town Clerk to ensure that your name and address are accurately noted and you acknowledge Town protocol. Council Agendas are finalized the Wednesday prior to the Council meeting, and if a Request Form is received after 10:00 am on Wednesday or if the Agenda is deemed full, the Request Form shall be considered at the next appropriate meeting. Council routinely refers matters to the Committee of the Whole for detailed review and recommendation back to Council and contact first with a Committee would expedite any process requiring a decision to be made by Council.

Committee of the Whole and Council Meeting Schedule

Committee of the Whole meetings and Council meetings are scheduled on Mondays on a 3 week rotation. Committee of the Whole meetings are during business hours and Council meetings are scheduled in the evenings.

Where a Monday is a statutory holiday, the Committee of the Whole or Council meeting is rescheduled to the following Wednesday. Meetings are held at Town Hall, 32 Mill Street, unless otherwise noted.

Please visit the Municipal Calendar for more information.
