Delegation Information

What is a Delegation?

Members of the public who wish to make presentations to Council on their own behalf or on behalf of companies/organizations are called delegations.

Where Do I Begin?

Before you decide to appear before Council, you may want to discuss concerns with a Council member or Town of LaSalle staff member. Some issues may be resolved at the staff level, or at the very least, staff can advise you the next step toward resolving your concerns.

Registering as a Delegation

Persons who wish to be heard or make a presentation to Council are requested to contact the Clerk's office at (519) 969-7770 ext. 1234.

Delegation Request Form (pdf) stating the topic to be discussed, a petition (pdf) or any request to be made of Council is required in writing.  Once received, the information will be circulated to Administration for response. This information will then be placed on an agenda and considered by Council.

A delegation will not be registered to address members of LaSalle Council at a Council meeting unless this specific item is listed on the Agenda.

Individuals who submit letters and other information to Council and its Committees should be aware that any personal information contained within their communications may become part of the public record, and may be made available through the agenda process, which includes publication on the municipality's website.

A copy of our brochure (pdf) outlining guidelines for delegations at regular Council Meetings is also available on- line or at LaSalle Town Hall.
