Appearing Before Council

Request to Appear as a Delegation

Requests to appear as a delegation are to be submitted, in writing, to the Director of Corporate Administration.  Requests must be received no later than noon on the Wednesday preceding a meeting.  Requests received past the deadline will be considered for the next meeting.  You may send your written request by email to kaustin@district.coldstream.bc.ca or you may mail it or drop it off at the Municipal Hall.  All requests must be accompanied by background information on the issue you wish to address (detail your concerns and what action, if any, you are asking Council to take).

Once your request has been received, you will be contacted to confirm that your request has been accepted and that you have been placed on the Council agenda.  If you do not receive a confirmation by Thursday preceding a meeting, you have NOT been placed on the agenda and should contact the Director of Corporate Administration.

Please Note:  Each delegation is permitted a maximum of 10 minutes.  Please ensure your presentation accommodates the time allotted.
