Council Meeting & Procedures

Delegations and Procedures

A person wishing to make a presentation directly to Council shall submit a written request to the town office explaining the issue that is to be addressed.  To request a time as a delegation, please give plenty of notice of your request as it can take longer than expected to ensure a time slot.  Council meets once per month with only two delegations permitted at the meeting.

Each delegation is limited to 15 minutes unless a longer period is agreed by two thirds of Council.   Delegates shall be permitted to speak during a Regular Council Meeting at the Delegation portion of the Agenda, which occurs at approximately 7:00 p.m.

At the place in the Agenda for the hearing of delegations, the Mayor shall call each item in order as it is listed on the agenda.

In questioning delegations, 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.
