City Council Preview: Monday, July 20, 2020

Council members are now on their summer schedule of reduced public meetings, with the only session for July scheduled for 7 PM tonight.

Tonight's work includes a pair of reports from the Chief Financial Officer, two variance reports from the City Manager, two reports from the Operations manager and the relay of information from a past Closed session from the Corporate Administrator.

As it is the only meeting for the month, it is also Committee of the Whole evening.

Tonight will feature a presentation from the Royal Canadian Legion, as well as to offer an opportunity for questions, or comments from the limited numbers of the public that will be allowed into the chamber under the COVID regulations.

Council has modified how the Committee of the Whole community engagement process will look during this period of pandemic and recovery.

With limited public attendance in place for the Council Session, those with questions, concerns or comments for tonight's gathering can also submit them to Corporate Administrator Rosa Miller in writing or, by way of telephone message for relay at tonight's meeting.

How to access Ms. Miller to make your contribution is explained here.

Those with an interest in tonight's council session can view the Live Feed from the City website. or on Cable Television from CityWest Cable Channel 10/310.

Council members will also continue to make use of the Closed Council process this evening, as they meet tonight in a Special Closed Session at 5PM  citing two items from the Community Charter as the reason to exclude the public.

90.1 (c) labour relations or other employee relations; and, 

(e) the acquisition, disposition or expropriation of land or improvements if the council considers that disclosure could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the municipality

Tonight's Closed session will mark the tenth time that Council has hosted a public excluded session so far this year.
