PLEASE NOTE: Effective February 1, 2017, Council will be holding their Council meetings in the Council Chambers at the Oxford County Administration Building, located at 21 Reeve Street, Woodstock.
Council meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. During the summer months of July and August there will be no evening meetings held on the 3rd Wednesday. Meetings are always open to the public (except for reasons explicitly permitted for through legislation).
View the Calendar of Events to find out when the next council meeting is.
While Council meetings are open to the public, you are not allowed to address Council or participate in the Council discussion. If you wish to address Council you need to be put on the agenda. To be put on the agenda, please contact the Township Office and ask to speak with the Clerk. The Clerk will need your name and all supporting background information/ documents on the matter you wish to present to Council prior to the agenda being prepared so they can be included in the agenda. Requests to be a delegation at Council must be received before 3:30 p.m. on the Wednesday before the Council meeting. This will give staff time to add you to the agenda and obtain any background information that is required. Please note that depending on the existing length of the agenda, you may need to present at a future meeting.
According to the Township's Procedural By-law #2018-01, "Persons addressing Council shall be limited to no more than ten (10) minutes except that when a delegation consists of more than five (5) persons it shall be limited to two (2) speakers, each limited to speaking for no more than ten (10) minutes."
It should be noted, that these procedures for delegations do not apply to Public Meetings, such as those required under the Planning Act, Drainage Act or where Council has specifically called a meeting for public input.
