Council Meeting - January 21, 2020

Please note that there was a microphone malfunction at the start of the Council meeting on January 21. As the audio is difficult to hear, below is the text of the resolution that was read by Mayor Sanderson, which was moved by the Deputy Mayor and Seconded by Councillor Meadows.

Note that after the Closed Session, the microphone was repaired for the remainder of the Council and Committee of the Whole meetings.
