How do I make a presentation to Council?

You can address Council during the first portion of the Council Meeting, under Delegations or Guests, or under Petitions and Questions. Although it is preferable to be listed on the agenda, it is not required that you do so in order to address Council. Delegations to Council are requested to keep their presentations no longer than 5-10 minutes in order that there is sufficient time for Council to ask questions.

How do I get listed on the Council agenda?

The agenda is finalized on Thursday morning, the week prior to the Council Meeting. Please contact the City Clerk at 250.638.4721 to be included on the agenda. 

Is there any other way to have my concern addressed by Council?

You don't need to be in attendance to make a presentation to Council if you don't wish to. Write to Mayor and Council, 3215 Eby Street, Terrace, B.C. V8G 2X8 and, in most cases, your item will be included on the next agenda for discussion by Council.

What if I have a comment to make, however, I don't want to attend the Council meeting?

Please contact the respective City Department directly during regular working hours. If you are calling to report an after hours problem, call 250.638.4744. You are welcome to email comments to cityhall@terrace.ca as well.

What happens to my correspondence or presentation to Council?

In most cases, your item of concern will be referred to a Committee of the Whole Meeting for further discussion and recommendation. This gives staff and Council time to undertake more research on the matter.   

Correspondence addressed to Mayor and Council is included on the public meeting agenda. Should you wish the item to remain confidential, you need to indicate this.  Please note that the item must meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act provisions in order to be excluded from the public agenda.  Please contact Alisa Thompson at 250.638.4721 if you have any questions or concerns.

Members of the public are also welcome to attend regular Committee of the Whole meetings. Please contact the City Clerk at 250.638.4721 to confirm meeting schedules, or the status of your correspondence or presentation to Council.

How do I contact the Mayor or a Councillor?

Please refer to the listed numbers and addresses for Mayor and Council or write to Mayor and Council at the City of Terrace, 3215 Eby Street, Terrace, B.C. V8G 2X8, or e-mail cityhall@terrace.ca.

How do I make arrangements for the Mayor or Council to attend a special event or function on behalf of the City of Terrace?

Contact the Council's Executive Assistant at 250.638.4724 to advise the City regarding your special event. Every effort will be made to ensure that someone is in attendance representing the City of Terrace, however, depending on schedules this may not always be possible. In order to ensure that Mayor and Council are reminded of your event, please do not contact them directly to make arrangements for their attendance, as this may result in your event not being noted on the Council reminders calendar.
