Submitting a question

You must submit questions online by 12 pm or in person by 7:15 pm the night of the Council meeting.

You will be given the opportunity to ask your question during the Council meeting. Under Council's governance rules, you will have a maximum of 2 minutes.

If you are not in attendance at the meeting, the Chair will determine whether or not to read and respond to your question.

For questions not responded to at the meeting, a response will be provided at a later date.

Types of meetings

There are two different types of meetings, these are Council and Strategic Planning Committee meetings.

Council meetings

Council meetings are generally held on the fourth Monday of each month (except in December).

Council meetings include public question time which allows the community to ask questions to Councillors about issues of concern.

Strategic Planning Committee meetings

The Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) is a Special Committee made up of Councillors.

The Committee meets 10 times each year generally on the second Monday of each month.

The Strategic Planning Committee can discuss a range of issues. The meeting has a more casual structure so allows for discussion on strategic matters.

Additional meetings of Council

Sometimes an additional Council meeting is required in addition to those scheduled. These dates are advertised on Council's website.

Election of the Mayor

The Election of the Mayor is held annually.

The 2023 meeting will be held on Wednesday 15 November at 7:00pm.

Council meeting dates and times

  • being held in person with a limit to the public gallery
  • being held virtually.
