You will be contacted by a municipal staff member to confirm your attendance at the meeting. If you require any audio/visual equipment, please advise the staff member at this time.
The Council meeting begins at 7:30 pm in the Belcarra Village Hall. Delegations are one of the first items of business on the agenda, so it is important to be at the meeting by 7:30 pm. If you have made arrangements to use audio/visual equipment, it is recommended you meet with the Municipal Administrator by 7:00 pm.
When it is time for you to speak, the Mayor will call your name, at which time you will come forward to the front of the meeting room. Please be sure to clearly state your name and address at the start of your presentation. You will be given five minutes to make your presentation (or more with the consent of Council), after which the Mayor and/or Council members 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 meeting.
