About Council Meetings

Council Meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. in person at the Mayo Community Centre, 66 Mayo Lake Rd. McArthurs Mills, ON. If there is a change in date or time a Notice will be advertised on the Township website.

Members of the public are welcome to attend Council Meetings (excluding In-Camera Sessions) however, only person(s) with delegation status are permitted to speak or address Council when meetings are in session.

Delegations

If an individual(s) would like delegation status for a Council Meeting they must contact the CAO/Clerk. All documents related to the delegation status must be submitted to the CAO/Clerk no later than 12:00 noon on the Wednesday prior to the Council Meeting date. This allows Council members time to review all documents before Council Meeting.

What is an In-Camera Session?

Municipal Councils, must meet behind closed doors on occasion to deal with certain matters. For example, if a municipality is being sued or dealing with a labour relations issue, then it is appropriate that they be able to do so at an In-Camera Session.
