All Regular Meetings are open to the public and are held at the Village Office Council Chambers. Access is through the main front doors. Meetings start at 5:00 pm.

The 2021 Council Meeting Schedule is available here.

As per the current public health order, masks are required to be worn by everyone in attendance at a Council meeting. Limited seating availability due to social distancing requirements. Contact the administrator for more information.

All submissions/delegations to Council must be received no later than 12:00 pm the Friday before the meeting.

Speaking before Council

Individuals or groups wishing to make a delegation directly to Council should contact the Administrator in writing as well as verbally no later than 12:00 pm the Friday prior to Council's regular meeting date to be included in the meeting agenda. ALL DELEGATIONS MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM WITH YOUR REQUEST. 

Tips for presenting:

  Delegations are typically placed at the beginning of the agenda, unless a specific time is requested and granted by Council. When Council is ready to hear the delegation, the Mayor or acting Chair will call the individual(s) forward to address Council.

  A high level of decorum is expected of delegates in attendance.  Please refrain from talking when other delegations are speaking and when Council is in session.

  Delegations should not exceed more than 10 minutes, excluding time to answer any questions put forward by Council. Unless otherwise permitted, spokespersons should be limited to one individual.

  Direct comments to the Mayor, not to staff members or members of the gallery.

  If you wish to leave after you have been heard by Mayor and Council, please do so in a quiet and orderly manner so as to not        interrupt the proceedings.

  If any audio/visual equipment is required, please advise the Village Office prior to the meeting.  If using materials like DVDs, CDs, or USB flash drives, please provide any information in advance if possible.

  Please provide electronic copies of all required materials for discussion.

  Councilors will ask only those questions which are relevant to the subject of the hearing and will avoid repetition. Delegations speaking to the subject will be restricted to the subject matter only.

  Any decision items required by or related to a delegation issue will be scheduled under the New Business portion of the agenda. Delegations will be informed by letter of any Council resolutions that result from speaking with Council.
