Regular Council meetings are open to the public and take place at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month (or Tuesdays when the Monday is a statutory holiday). In July, August and December there is only one regular Council meeting that takes place on the second Monday of the month.
Residents can stay informed of when upcoming Council meetings will take place through: the Town's website, Devon Dispatch advertising pages, Facebook page and Twitter account.
Public presentations take place at regular council meetings.
Council Briefings (previously Committee of the Whole Meetings) are open to the public and take place when scheduled by Council through a motion at a Council Meeting. For consistency, these meetings are usually scheduled for the third Monday of the month.
Council Briefings allow for a more thorough conversation outside of an official Council Meeting between Council and Administration on specific projects, policies or initiatives. There are no public presentations at Council Briefings.
Council encourages all residents to share their thoughts and information. There is an opportunity to address Council during the scheduled / unscheduled delegations portion of the regular Council meeting.
It is recommended that you discuss your concerns with administration before appearing before council, as many concerns can be resolved at the administration level. Town staff can provide valuable background information and recommend appropriate next steps or contact information.
For more information, please contact Melanie Crothers, Executive Assistant to Mayor & Council at P: 780-987-8310 or E: MCrothers@devon.ca

Scheduled delegations have 15 minutes to present, including questions and answers. Staff will contact you to confirm your spot on the agenda and the length of your presentation. Please be aware that we will do our best to accommodate your request in a timely manner, but as there is usually only one scheduled delegation per meeting, your first meeting date choice may not be possible.

Unscheduled delegations have 3 minutes to present, and although we encourage unscheduled delegations to notify staff beforehand, this is not mandatory.
