City Council

What we do

City Council is elected to represent and consider the interests and well-being of the community. It provides oversight of the City’s administration and ensures policies, procedures, and practices are in place to implement Council decisions. Through its decision-making, Council directs staff, determines which services the municipality will provide and at what level, and upholds the municipality’s financial integrity.

Why we do it

As local elected representatives, members of Council are accountable to the community and work to serve the public interest. Council’s commitment to good governance and community engagement reflects our community’s values and aligns with the five priorities of the Strategic Plan.
