Hybrid Meetings and Delegations

As of April 26, 2022, Members of LaSalle Council have returned to in-person meetings in Council Chambers. Members of the public can participate in Council meetings in-person or virtually. Meetings are open to the public and seats in the gallery have been reduced to allow for physical distancing. If you choose to attend in-person, please note that masking is optional at this time. If you wish to simply observe a meeting from your home, you can watch a livestream of the meeting on our YouTube Channel.

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.

Where Do I Begin?

Before you decide to appear before Council, you may want to discuss the matter with a Council Member or Town of LaSalle Staff Member. Some matters may be addressed without the need to appear before Council.  At the very least, the Council Member or Staff Member will advise you of next steps.

What is the Format of the Meetings?

Delegations are heard by Council near the beginning of the meeting. The Mayor will invite you, as a delegate, to approach the delegation table to make your presentation. After you speak and answer any questions, Council may discuss the matter further and may make a decision. You do not have to stay for the whole meeting and can leave after Council has discussed your item.

How Long can I Speak?

Presentations - 10 minutes

Delegations - 5 minutes

Where there are numerous delegations taking the same position on a matter, they are encouraged to select a spokesperson to present their views.
