Delegation Information

Virtual Delegations

All written comments must be submitted to the Clerk by Monday at noon before the scheduled Council Meeting. Anything submitted after the cut off time will not be submitted to Council or form part of Agenda.

Council Meetings are being held virtually through Zoom due to the Covid-19 pandemic. If you would like to participate at a virtual meeting you can. You can submit a written comment to the Town of LaSalle Clerk's department by email, fax or in person. You can register to provide verbal comments during a virtual meeting by contacting the Executive Assistant to the Clerk by email or by phone at (519) 969-7770 extension 1234. It is your responsibility to indicate if you require an accommodation. The Clerk will determine the best method to address the accommodation before the meeting. The meetings are broadcasted live on the Town of LaSalle's Youtube Channel. Delegates that participate virtually will form part of the recording.

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 form (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 online or at LaSalle Town Hall.
