Do you have something to say to council or something you’d like to ask council about? Well, if you do, it looks like your opportunity has arrived.
Members of the South Dundas council will be making themselves available to the public on Monday, October 17th at 7 p.m. at the Matilda Hall in Dixon’s Corners.
At the October 4th council meeting, mayor Steven Byvelds announced the upcoming “round table” where there will be an opportunity for “discussion between council and members of the public.”
The meeting falls during the fourth annual Local Government Week, October 16th to 22nd.
The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing states: “Local Government Week is an opportunity for Ontario students, educators and municipalities to engage one another on how their communities work.”
Byvelds told the Leader that as of October 6th no schools had contacted him to speak or meet with their students to talk about municipal politics. He commented that the idea “certainly would be a fit for their Civics class.”
