Appearing as a Council Delegation
Citizen involvement in local government is an essential part of the democratic process and there are many ways in which you can voice your concerns and become involved.
Regular meetings of Council are open to the public and are held at 7:00 pm on the second and fourth Monday of the month (excluding Statutory Holidays) in the Town Hall Council Chamber. The schedule may be subject to change throughout the year. View the current Council Meeting Schedule.
At each regular Council meeting, Council hears from citizens or other parties who have concerns about issues affecting the District of Stewart. To appear before Council, you must submit a request in writing to the CAO by 1:00pm on the Thursday prior to the Council meeting at which you wish to appear. If there is no available time slot, a staff member of the CAO will contact you to make alternate arrangements for your request.

When it is time for you to speak, the Mayor will call your name. At that time, you will come forward at the front of the Chamber. Please be sure to state your name and address clearly at the start of your presentation. You will be given five minutes to make your presentation, after which the Mayor and/or Councillors may ask you questions.
Once you have finished your presentation, you may resume your seat to watch the remainder of the meeting, or you may leave. If you elect to leave at this time, please do so in a quiet, orderly manner so as not to interrupt the proceedings.
