Council meetings may be cancelled by resolution of Council, such as in July or August or Statutory Holidays.
Special Meetings of Council are scheduled, as needed. If time permits there will be public notification and an agenda package available on the Town’s website.

Members of the Public are Welcome
All Council meetings are open to the public, except for scheduled Closed Session discussions. You are welcome to attend Council Meetings in person, or online using the meeting link published in each agenda package.
If you would like to take an opportunity to speak directly with your elected officials, there are two (2) ways to do this at a Council meeting. Please read the brochure "Question Period (PDF)". If you require time to provide Council with a presentation on a matter requiring a decision of Council, you may contact the Legislative Services Supervisor to schedule a Delegation. If you have questions about speaking with Council please use the contacts on the side of this page.
Meetings may include Public Hearings. You will find the information on those rules and guidelines by following the link to the "Public Hearings Information and Process (PDF)" document.
Alberta Municipal Affairs publishes a very handy brochure "Pecuniary Interest for Municipal Councillors (PDF)" The guide is filled with information about what determines when a Councillor must declare a pecuniary interest and excuse themselves from discussion/voting - and the rules outlining the obligations of a Councillor to vote on any matter before Council.
