Regular Council meetings are open to the public and are typically held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, commencing at 6:30 pm in Council Chambers, located at #1 Opal Drive in the Municipal Office.
Council passed a resolution in 2021 to live stream broadcast Council meetings.
Transparency and accountability are fundamental to effective governance. That’s why council and committee meetings are open to the public. They give community members the power to voice their concerns and hear what officials have to say.
Live streaming brings government meetings straight to you. Accessing broadcasts on a laptop, tablet, or phone makes it much easier to engage in local government. This also allows us to disseminate information quickly, increase transparency and accessibility and increase community engagement.
Due to supply chain shortages, the Tremont Creek Wildfire, and staffing capacity broadcasted meetings have been delayed. We are working with AV professionals to get the equipment required but due to circumstances out of our control wait times are much longer than anticipated. While we work on bringing broadcasted meetings to the community, we invite you to attend Council meetings in person.

Agendas for Regular Council meetings are prepared and posted the Friday before the scheduled meeting and for Committee of the Whole, Special, or InCamera meetings, 24 hours prior to the meeting.
