Delegation Size
The committee meeting room at our office holds a maximum of 25 people, including directors and staff. With adequate notice, a committee meeting can be moved to another location to accommodate large delegations. However, if your delegation is large and we do not get adequate notice, some delegation members may not be able to participate in the meeting.

Unscheduled Delegations
With the approval of the majority of the members present, a delegation may address a board or committee meeting even if it has not given notice or a report. The chair has the authority to restrict the time allowed for such presentations. If the board does not consider your matter urgent, it may direct your delegation to one of its committees for further consideration. Should that happen, the board will not be able to resolve your matter until it has heard from that committee.

Delegations Regarding Bylaws

A delegation is not permitted to address the board about a bylaw which has been considered at a required public hearing.

Agendas & Minutes
We provide open access to agendas and minutes for our board and committee meetings. Upcoming meeting agenda packages and all minutes are posted to this website (click here). From more information, contact use at at 604-485-2260.
