Meeting Schedules

Council meetings include the Mayor and all eight Councillors. This is where bylaws, development permits, and other official business is formalized. Public hearings also occur during meetings of Council. All members of the public are welcome to speak at Public Hearings – no advance notice is required.

Council meetings normally occur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. If you wish to address Council on a topic other than a Public Hearing, please fill out the Request to Address Council form.

Committee of the Whole is comprised of the Mayor and all members of Council, but the meetings are not considered formal Council meetings. When Council meets as Committee of the Whole,  no final decisions are made but rather recommendations can be made to Council that must be considered at a properly convened Council Meeting in order to be acted on or implemented. Committee meetings provide an opportunity for Mayor and Council to discuss issues less formally and in advance of actual decision making , and to workshop ideas and proposals before being advanced to Council meetings for formal approval. Recommendations from Committee of the Whole appear on the Council meeting agenda under the Reports of Committee section.

Committee of the Whole meetings normally occur on the first four Thursdays of each month at 9:00 a.m.

Agendas and minutes for all Council and Committee of the Whole meetings can be found here.
