In June of 2018, Council authorized a Public Participation Policy (ADMIN-020), in accordance with the Municipal Government Act. The Policy also has an associated Procedure document.
There are a number of ways that the public can participate in the workings of their local government. People can stay informed by attending Council meetings, reading Agendas and Minutes, reading the twice-monthly Council Connection article in the Western Wheel or by visiting our website and Facebook page regularly. There are also a number of ways that more direct participation can take place. Question Period is available at every Regular Council meeting, people can request to attend a Council meeting as a Delegation, participation in surveys, attendance at open houses or information sessions, and of course, speaking directly with your elected officials.
The tabs to the left provide information on Current Opportunities for public participation and Closed Opportunities will provide information that may continue to be of interest to the public, although the participation events are finished.
