Council Meetings of Feb 14, 2017

This time around Monday was a Holiday, Family Day, so the meetings were moved to Tuesday.
They began with a Committee Of The Whole in the morning followed by an In-Camera meeting and then the Regular meeting in the evening.

Notes for first time visitors:
The slices in the pie charts are actually buttons. Click on one and a new window opens. In that window you will be able to watch the meeting starting from the point where that topic begins.
At the end you will see the two meetings – you can watch them from the beginning here. Or skip to where ever you want of course – most people find the pie slice buttons an easier place to start.

First the Committee Of The Whole meeting.

Next the Regular meeting.
