Town Minutes

Minutes are a record of what was decided at council meetings and are necessary for regulatory and legal reasons. Clear and unambiguous minutes allow councillors to see what was done in the past and to avoid passing conflicting regulations. Minutes should never be and are not a verbatim reproduction of the discussion at council, rather a record of decisions of council, references to relevant documentation, voting and attendance.

Minutes do not record all the discussion rather just a summary of the debate. Each resolution or
motion is numbered by year and by motion i.e. 2011-001 to make it easier to locate them.

The Council minutes below are provided for information only, and should not be relied on as definitive. Actual signed copies are available for viewing at the Town Office.
