How To Be A Delegation Before Council

How To Be A Delegation Before Council

At each regular Council meeting, Council will hear from residents or other parties who wish to speak to Council regarding issues affecting the Village of Belcarra.

In order to appear before Council you must submit a request in writing to the Chief Administrative Officer by 12:00 noon on the Wednesday prior to the Council meeting at which you wish to appear. (If there is a scheduling problem with the request, you will be contacted by a staff member to make alternate arrangements for your request).

Your request must include your name, address, telephone number where you can be reached during the day, and the issue you wish to discuss. You can use this Delegation Request Form.

You may fax your letter to 604-939-5034, deliver it to the Village Hall in person, mail it to the address noted above, or e-mail your request to admin@belcarra.ca.

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 7:00 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 7:00 pm. If you have made arrangements to use audio/visual equipment, it is recommended you meet with the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) 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.

If you have any questions regarding the Public Hearing Process, contact the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Lorna Dysart at Tel: 604-937-4100, Fax: 604-939-5034, or visit the Village Office from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm:

  • Belcarra Municipal Hall
  • 4084 Bedwell Bay Road
