Council had a busy day with 3 meetings. We can only show you two of them.
Feb 11 was a very busy day for City Council.
They had 5 meetings that day.
Committee Of The Whole began at 9AM.
That was followed by an in-camera meeting.
In the afternoon they had a Budget Planning session.
At 6PM there was a Public Hearing.
And at 7PM they had the regular meeting of council.
The pie charts are for the committee of the whole and the regular meeting. All the meetings (except the in-camera one) are watchable below in the order in which they happened.
The agendas for all of these meetings are as follows:
My apologies to the viewers of the Regular meeting live stream for having the wrong meeting title block (top of screen) on screen. The video below has that corrected.
There were supposed to be two meetings on Aug 21 but the Committee Of The Whole meeting was cancelled.
The ‘regular’ meeting was in the evening though it wasn’t ‘regular’ in a few senses.
On days where there are a COTW meeting in the morning and a regular meeting in the evening what usually takes place is delegations appear at the COTW where open discussion happens. Then if any actual decisions need to be made that fall into actions by council those happen during the evening meeting. It’s not always that way but often that gives topics brought by the delegations a broader scope with members of the public being able to participate in the discussion.
This evening meeting had two delegations slated to appear and neither showed up. Why I cannot say but it left council to discuss and deliberate based on the documentation submitted to it. One was the Fall Fair and the other the Herbivore Cannabis dispensary.
The other aspect of the meeting that wasn’t ‘regular’ was the participation of 3 council members by conference telephone call. Councilors Butler, Hammett and Ross appeared in voice only. So while all 7 were discussing and voting only 4 were physically present in the chamber. This is the first time I can recall where more than one council member was a ‘phone in’.
There is another PDF file as well, a Late Item regarding an extra $150,000 to be added to the budget for work on 22nd Street.
The meeting is below. To jump to any part just click on the pie slice for that portion and the meeting video will open in a new tab at that point in the meeting.
City Council had a full day Jan 30.
They had Committee Of The Whole in the morning, budget sessions in the afternoon and a regular council meeting in the evening.
We have the council meetings for your viewing here. (sorry no budget session)
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 up is the Committee Of The Whole meeting.
Next is the Regular Meeting.
