Council meets on the second and fourth Monday of every month. To speak or make a presentation at a Council meeting, please contact the City Clerk of City Manager.

The request shall contain a description of the issue or issues to be addressed by the delegation, together with a summary of the action or actions to be requested of Council by the delegation.
During the meeting:

2. Unless the presiding Officer otherwise permits, spokesperson for any one delegation shall be limited to one (1) individual.

Public input is accepted, and often requested, at the committee stage, where many issues can be resolved prior to a matter coming before the whole of Council. The City has several different standing committees providing recommendations on a wide range of programs, policies and services including: Administration & Protection, Works & Utilities, Community & Leisure Services, and Community Development. As with Council meetings, all regular committee meetings are open to the public, with the exception of a very limited number of meetings permitted to be held “in-camera” by The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
