City Council Preview for Monday, May 11, 2015

Tonight's first Council meeting for the month of May should be considerably less controversial than the April 27th version and a fair bit shorter as well, with the agenda showing few items to take up Council's time as they gather this evening at 7 PM.

Among the items that have been identified for notice for the Monday session a request for a proclamation of support from the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

As well, Council will also release the names of the members of the community appointed to the Recreation Commission for 2015.

Beyond those items, Council has little in the way of work indicated in such areas as Reports, Bylaws or petitions and delegations for tonight's session.

The full review of the evening ahead can be found from the Agenda Package for May 11.

And while the public session is fairly light in material, Council will also sit in a closed session this evening starting at 5 PM offering up a subject that perhaps might provide for more in depth review from our elected officials.

The session that is closed to the public will consider: negotiations and related discussion respecting the proposed provision of municipal services that are at their preliminary stages and that, in the view of the council, could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the municipality if they were held in public

Below we'll highlight the different elements of this evenings work from the Regular session Agenda, for further background on each item, the page number from the Agenda is listed in red.

The session starts off with the regular adoption of agendas and minutes.
