Regular Council meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 9:00am
All Council meetings, with a few exceptions, are open to viewing by the general public.
If you wish to appear before Council, you must have a delegation time.
How to appear before Council:
  1. You can contact the Department Manager; or
  2. You can contact the office of the Municipal Manager.

Key points to remember when appearing before Council:
  1. You must provide Council with a written submission that explains your concerns.  This will allow Council time to better prepare for questions and have some background on the item being brought forward.
  2. You must discuss your concerns with the Department Manager or Office of the Municipal Manager to assist in preparing your presentation to Council.

If you are unsure who you should be speaking with, please feel free to contact the County Office and you will be directed to the correct department.
Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Statement

While all meetings of Council are open to the public, the section 197 (2) of the MGA allows Council and council committees [to] close all or part of their meetings to the public if a matter to be discussed is within one of the exceptions to disclosure in Division 2 of Part 1 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.  

Under section 198 of the MGA, the public has a right to be present at council and committee meetings that are conducted in public.

PLEASE NOTE: Given the public nature of council and committee meetings, if an individual writes to a Councillor or Clearwater County staff member, he or she should realize that all correspondence, including personal information, may be disclosed at a public council or committee meeting.  Clearwater County endeavours to protect sensitive personal information disclosed in correspondence to the County (i.e. personal financial circumstances or personal health information etc.), and in these cases a severed record or summary of the information inquiry or complaint could be prepared for use at the council meeting.
