Address Council at a meeting

Would you like the opportunity to address councillors at a Public Forum?

Public Forum is available for members of our community to voice their opinion on an issue at Council. The address is to be no longer than four minutes, and councillors and staff may question the speaker following completion of the address. You can only address Council once on any issue.
