The Town of Black Diamond encourages citizens to be engaged in what's happening in our community. At the September 16, 2020, Council meeting Bylaw 2020-14 Advertising Bylaw was given third reading, following the required public hearing. As a result, all advertising required by section 606 of the Municipal Government Act, will now be placed on the Town's website. It may also be advertised in other ways, but it will be posted to the website at all times.
Please check the available links to the left (or below if viewing on a mobile device) regularly to be aware of events that are available for your information or participation.
There are a number of ways that the public can participate in the workings of their local government. People can stay informed by attending Council meetings (view calendar), reading Agendas and Minutes, reading the twice-monthly Council Connection article in the Western Wheel or visiting our website, Instagram and Facebook page regularly.
There are also a number of ways that more direct participation can take place. Question Period is available at every Regular Council meeting or people can request to attend a Council meeting as a Delegation. Other options for public participation include taking part in public hearings, answering surveys, attendance at open houses or information sessions, and of course, speaking directly with your elected officials.
