Meetings are scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month commencing at 6:30 p.m. Exceptions occur when a statutory holiday falls on a Monday. In this event, the meeting is moved to the Tuesday immediately following the statutory holiday. A second occurs during the months of July and August when there is only one meeting per month. That meeting is likely to be re-scheduled to an appropriate Monday in each month while having regard to other municipal business taking place during that time.
The final exception is during the month of December when the final meeting of the month is cancelled due to the Christmas season and the first meeting of the month gets moved to the second Monday of the month. To view the schedule of council meetings, please click the link below.
