Council meets regularly as Committee of the Whole (COTW) to receive public delegations, inquiries, and staff reports on various issues. COTW provides an opportunity for Council to informally discuss items with staff or other resources present to provide information as needed. COTW meetings are chaired by the Acting Mayor. The COTW may provide direction to staff on Agenda items at the COTW meeting. Council, sitting as COTW, cannot decide on City business at a committee meeting but may make recommendations for council’s consideration at a Council meeting. The chair of the COTW reports on the Committee’s meetings at Council meetings. Subject to holding a lawful incamera meeting in accordance with Section 90 of the Community Charter, COTW meetings are open to the public. The meetings are held in Council Chambers at City Hall.
