Delegations shall be granted a maximum of ten (10) minutes to present the matter outlined in their request.

Persons or delegations appearing at Council meetings who are not listed on the agenda may be heard only upon unanimous consent of the Council members present.

Public Hearing

A Public Hearing is held so Council can receive comments from the public on a specific decision before voting on it.

All Public Hearings are advertised for two weeks on the Town website and in the Innisfail Province.  Area residents affected by the proposal are notified directly. At a Public Hearing, any person present who believes his/her interest is affected by a proposed bylaw shall be given an opportunity to be heard.

What to expect at a Public Hearing

The public hearing begins when the Mayor calls the hearing to order. The Mayor must ask if anyone is present to speak to the proposed bylaw or resolution. All those in attendance are to introduce themselves for the record.

Public Hearings generally proceed as follows:

  • Administration will introduce the proposed bylaw or resolution;
  • The Mayor will ask if anyone would like to speak “for” the proposal, followed by those who wish to speak “against” the proposed;
  • Persons will generally be allowed five (5) minutes to speak;
  • After a person has spoken, any Council Member may ask that speaker relevant questions through the Mayor;
  • Any Council Member may ask the Administration relevant questions after all persons who wish to speak have been heard;
  • Council must allow an opportunity to all persons to respond to any new information or change in the nature of the application that has arisen;
  • The Mayor may then close the hearing.
