Council Meetings

Unless otherwise advertised, the regularly scheduled Town Council meetings are as follows:

  • First and Third Wednesday of each month (except for July and August)
  • Time:  7:30 p.m.
  • Location:  Council Chambers located at 301 Centre Avenue W.

All Council meetings are open to the public and you are encouraged to come and see your Council at work. Please refer to the Council and Committee of Council Brochure for further information.

If you would like to take an opportunity to speak directly with your elected officials, please read the brochure How Do I Speak with Council?

Alberta Municipal Affairs publishes a very handy brochure - Municipal Councillors' Guidelines for Conflict of Interest   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.

COUNCIL MEETING AGENDAS

The Public Agenda Package for the upcoming Regular Council Meeting is generally posted here by 10:00am on the Monday prior to the Council meeting.  This package can be quite large, and may take a few minutes to download.  We ask your patience during this time.

The Public Agenda Package will include all items contained within the Council Agenda Package excluding any staff reports to Council that are marked "confidential", either in whole or in part.  Administration will also sever any attachments, either in whole or in part, including, but not limited to, correspondence, as it determines necessary, and/or as required by the Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection (FOIPP) Act, the MGA, or any other legislation as applicable. 

Any written submission to Council, not outlined herein, may be considered to be a publicly releasable document, and as such may be attached, either in whole or in part, to both the Council Agenda Package and the Public Agenda Package.

The Council Meeting Agenda will be posted on the front door of the Town Office on the Friday immediately preceding the Council meeting.

The Public Agenda Package will also be available to the Public for viewing at the Town Office during regular office hours on the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday immediately preceding the Council meeting.  Regular photocopying charges will apply for any person wishing to obtain a copy of the Public Agenda Package, or any portion thereof, from the Town Office during the hours of availability.

The Council Meeting Agenda only, excluding attachments, will be available to the Press and Public at the Council meeting. 

Policy # 12-63 "Public Communication Policy", which guides how the Public Agenda Package is prepared and posted here, was authorized by Council on April 21, 2010, and effective immediately thereafter.  Any Agendas prepared prior to this date will show only an Agenda, without attachments.

Council Agendas are posted and archived in chronological order from oldest to most recent.  Please click on the Council Agenda Archive link to view them.

 

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES

Once Council has ratified the previous meeting Minutes, they will be posted into the Council Minutes Archive.  We will make every attempt to do this within 48 hours after Council meets and passes the resolution regarding the Minutes.

The Minutes of Council meetings from 2009 forward are posted here in chronological order from oldest to most recent.  Please click on the Council Minutes Archive link to view them.
