Appearing before Council as a Delegation

  • If City Staff are unable to address your situation or concerns, you can ask to speak to (appear before) Council. To appear you must be scheduled as a formal delegation, which can be requested through this form or by using the online form.
  • Delegation requests must be in writing and must be received two weeks prior to the selected Council meeting date. Once you’ve provided the filled-out form and any background information, you will receive written confirmation of your delegation (appearance).
  • The agenda for Council meetings is reviewed and set on the Wednesday prior to the meeting. During this review, delegations may be rescheduled due to volume concerns. We thank you for your understanding when such instances arise.
  • Pursuant to the Council, any presentation made to Council will be brought forward at the next Council meeting (approximately two weeks’ time) for consideration.

Your Presentation to Council

  • Council has established a 5-minute time limit for presentations, followed by questions or comments from Council Members.
  • Any written information or Power Point presentations must be received on the Monday prior to the Council meeting day (i.e. one week in advance).
  • Please address the Mayor as “Mayor Cumming” or “Your Worship” and all questions are directed to the Mayor as Chairperson of the meeting.  Other Council Members shall be addressed as “Councillor”.
