How to Address Council

HOW TO ADDRESS COUNCIL

If you are interested in voicing a concern to Mayor and Council there are a number of options.

Except in unusual circumstances, Council and Committee Agenda’s are available to the public in the afternoon on the Friday before a Tuesday meeting.  You can also request to be added to the Agenda email contact list instead of having to visit the Village office.

If you see an item you would like to discuss, or require further information, you can call the Village office and our fantastic office staff will be able to put you in touch with the most relevant person.  Did you know you can also contact Council members directly?  This community elected Council and they are there to listen to your comments and concerns!

Meetings begin at 4:00 p.m. unless otherwise advertised.  The public will be able to speak on current Agenda items at the beginning of the Council meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.   The opportunity to speak on municipal matters (formerly held at Committee of the Whole meetings) will be provided at the end of the Council meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month.  It isn’t a forum for debate but a place to raise concerns.

You can request to be added to a Regular Council Agenda as a Delegation and will be allowed 10 minutes to make a presentation.  This must be done in writing (email is acceptable) no later than 4:00 p.m. on the Wednesday prior to a meeting.

Correspondence can be submitted to the Corporate Officer by fax 250-679-3070 or email soflaherty@chasebc.ca, however, the original documents must still be submitted to the Village Office.

Please note that all correspondence submitted to the Village of Chase will form part of the public record and will be published if this matter is before Council or a Committee of Council. The Village considers the author’s address relevant to Council’s consideration of this matter and will disclose this personal information. However, the author’s phone number and email address are not required and should be omitted if the author does not wish this personal information disclosed.
