Presenting/Requests to Mayor & Council
The Public Comment section of the agenda gives residents the opportunity to speak for up to three minutes. Put up your hand at that point in the meeting when the Mayor asks if anyone in the audience would like to speak. Please only speak on topics within Council’s jurisdiction. This is generally the only opportunity during the meeting for public comments or questions.
General requests of Council must be made by submitting the General Request Form. Requests must be received by 12:00 p.m. on the Monday one week prior to the meeting. The best way to ensure your request is submitted on time is via email to the Corporate Officer. Failure to meet this submission deadline may result in the request being scheduled for the next Regular Council Meeting. Requests become public documents and are published in the agenda package. Personal information (e.g. email address, phone number) will be redacted.
A Delegation is a presentation by a person or persons on behalf of an organization or association. Members of the public can present to Council at Regular Council Meetings, pending approval by the Corporate Officer.
All requests to the Corporate Officer must be made in writing using the Delegation Request Form. Please download the form before filling it out. After completing the form, please email it to the Corporate Officer. Your presentation must be on a matter within the District’s jurisdiction and must not promote a private business. You will be contacted by Staff to confirm your presentation date and time.
Resolutions or Letters of Support are commonly required for grant applications. Individuals, non-profits, or organizations may request these by submitting a Resolution of Support or Letter of Support Request Form.
When a request is received, it will be added to the upcoming Regular Council Meeting agenda. Requests must be received by 12:00 p.m. on the Monday one week prior to the meeting. The best way to ensure your request is submitted on time is through email to the Corporate Officer. Requests become public documents and are published in the agenda package. Personal information (e.g. email address, phone number) will be redacted.
Public Hearings are a formal process held by Council to receive public input on Zoning or Official Community Plan bylaw amendments. In accordance with the Local Government Act, any person who believes that their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw is given an opportunity to speak. Public Hearings are advertised in the Omineca Express, posted on the District website and social media accounts, and at the Municipal Office.
