Public Hearings
Public hearings are formal hearings that must follow rules set out by provincial and local legislation. Comments may be submitted in writing or verbally during the hearing, and Council can ask questions of the people who are present. Anyone may speak during a public hearing.

Once a public hearing has been adjourned, Council may not consider any further public input. This does not mean that individual councillors cannot keep gathering input. It means that any comments received after the hearing cannot be formally recognized by Council or become part of the public record. 

Council relies heavily on input received at public hearings to help them make decisions on behalf of the community.
