2023 Regular Council Meeting Schedule
2024 Regular Council Meeting Schedule
January and February Regular Meetings of Council will be held on the second and fourth Monday of each month. Effective March 13, 2023 and onwards, Regular Meetings of Council will be held on a three-week rotational schedule with meetings continuing to be held on Mondays, unless otherwise indicated in the 2023 Regular Council Meeting Schedule. When a holiday lands on a Monday, the meeting is generally moved to the Tuesday. Unless otherwise posted, all meetings take place in the Council Chambers at Municipal Hall, located at 13211 Henry Ave. All meetings are open to the public unless the Community Charter requires a meeting to be closed. Should you wish to attend Council Chambers in-person, advance registration is encouraged by contacting email@example.com. Alternatively, electronic access to the meeting can be granted for those that wish to participate electronically. To receive the electronic meeting details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For those interested in viewing the meeting, but not seeking to actively participate, you may live stream the meetings via the District of Summerland’s YouTube channel.
