Council & Staff

Council and Council Meetings

Council consists of a Mayor and four Councillors who were elected for a four-year term expiring in October 2018. The Community has the opportunity to provide input to Council on various issues such as: budgets, taxes, development and community needs. Council's powers are exercised through the adoption of resolutions or bylaws or by setting policy.

Council meetings are regularly scheduled for the second and fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Columbia Discovery Center at 8866 Grainger Road and are open to the public. The public can address Council at these meetings during the public question period. If major items are to be discussed, arrangements should be made, in writing using the Delegation Request Form prior to noon on the Wednesday before the meeting in order for the item to be included on the Council agenda. The Council Meeting Schedule for the year, can be found in the Meeting Calendar section of the website.
