Town Council to meet by teleconference

Posted on Monday March 23, 2020

The Province of Ontario amended The Municipal Act, 2001 last week to allow councils, council committees, and municipal boards to meet virtually during municipal or provincial emergencies.

As a result, Tillsonburg Council called a Special Council Meeting on Friday, March 20 at 3:00 p.m. to consider amending the Town’s Procedural By-Law #2230. The motion to allow virtual meetings (including full participation and voting rights for Council) passed unanimously.

As a result, the next regular meeting of Council scheduled for Monday, March 23, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. will be held via teleconference. There will be no public entry to Council Chambers.

How to watch the meeting

“Openness and transparency remain important to us, but given the circumstances, we need to heed the advice of our health care professionals and do what we can to limit the potential for this virus to spread,” says Mayor Stephen Molnar. “I want to reiterate our commitment to working together with our community partners on this. We are participating in daily calls with public health officials and adjusting our business practices accordingly. Many Town staff are currently working from home and we are implementing a corporate business continuity plan to ensure essential operations can continue throughout this crisis.”
