Delegations to Council

Members of the public who wish to make presentations to Council on their own behalf or on behalf of companies or organizations are called “delegations to Council.” Requests to appear before Council are to be in writing, and submitted to the Council Administrator at least one week prior to the meeting at which you want to appear.  The request should include the subject matter to be discussed, along with any background information that would be of assistance to Council.  Delegations are allowed ten minutes to address Council.
