Town Hall Meeting

What Happens at a Town Hall?

There is no set agenda at a Town Hall meeting - these more informal meetings provide community members an opportunity to voice their opinions, suggest new ideas, and ask questions of Council. Senior City staff are also in attendance to respond to inquiries. 

The feedback provided at these sessions provides Council and staff important information about City services, changes taking place in the community and future opportunities.
