About Council and Priorities Committee meetings

Council meetings are regular meetings where Council votes and makes decisions on County matters.

Priorities Committee meetings include all members of Council. These meetings allow for more discussion on reports and updates and include public presentations and Open House sessions.

Priorities Committee has limited decision-making authority, so instead makes recommendations to Council. It can also refer items to Administration or another committee for further work. 

Speaking to Council

There are three different ways you can speak to Council. You must register to speak at any of these sessions. Specific details are on each information page.

  1. Public hearings let members of the public speak to Council on planning and development matters, as well as other matters decided by Council. 
  2. Public presentations are official topics to be discussed in a Priorities Committee meeting. Individuals, groups, organizations or external agencies can present in these meetings.
  3. Open house sessions let members of the public make shorter (five minute) presentations to the Priorities Committee. Committee members can ask questions, but this is not a forum for larger discussions.
