Most residents pay little attention to Council when they make operational decisions such as: which road to excavate for new services or when an old snow plough has to be replaced. Staff make these decisions and our voices are usually not needed.
However when decisions are made that really affect residents: a new sidewalk installation, or drastic changes to paid parking or beach restrictions - we, the public, must be consulted.
According to the Municipal Act Section 224 the Role of Council is to a) "represent the public" – so accordingly – we must not just be consulted but we must be taken seriously.
