City Council Preview: Monday, November 28, 2016
The clock is ticking down towards the final Council sessions of 2016, with tonight's work providing for the second last public session for the year.
Judging by the notes from the Agenda Package for tonight's session, the work load won't be particularly harsh as Council members wind down their November efforts.
The information package released on Monday morning, provides no extensive preview for the session that is ahead for the Mayor and Council when they gather tonight at 7 PM. Nor does it offer an update on the progress of past issues that had been deferred by Council from previous sessions.
You can review the background documentation for tonight's Regular Session from the Agenda notice here.
Tonight is also an Committee of the Whole evening, which includes an open forum opportunity for residents to raises questions or offer some thoughts for the Council members.
Council also will be holding a Closed Session for this evening starting at 5 PM, the city citing criteria from Section 90 of the Community Charter, noting that the public is to be excluded from those deliberations for the following reasons:
90.1 (k) negotiations and related discussion respecting the proposed provision of a municipal service that are at their preliminary stages and that, in the view of council, could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the municipality if they were held in public.
As for the Regular Council session that starts off with the adoption of agendas and minutes.
