Presenting to Council

For Council and Policy and Priorities Committee meetings, time is set aside during the noon hour for anyone to address Council on any topic. You do not have to pre-register. Each speaker has up to 10 minutes to speak. Anyone who needs more time to present and/or discuss an issue with Council may do so. Called a delegation request, it must be submitted in writing to Legislative Services at least six days prior to the desired meeting date. A delegation has up to 30 minutes with Council.

Council members are paid a monthly honorarium and communications (phone/Internet access) allowance. Per diems are paid for attendance at meetings, conferences and other municipal activities.
