What is a City Council Meeting?

Council Meetings

City Council is the formal decision-making body for the City of Grande Prairie. At Council meetings, councillors set the long-term direction for the municipality, establish policy, pass bylaws, and approve budgets, tax mill rates, development, master plans and significant capital projects.

Council Committee of the Whole

Council Committee of the Whole meets several times a year upon request to consider a variety of issues. Members of the public can ask to be placed on the agenda as a delegation or request to speak at the meeting. 
Council Committee of the Whole meetings allow the Councillors to discuss significant issues in a less formal setting before these items are brought to a Council Meeting and the direction is finalized. For example, budgets are deliberated upon in Council Committee of the Whole sessions and then moved on to a Council Meeting. 

Who Can Attend

Everyone is welcome to attend City Council meetings and Council Committee of the Whole meetings. 

Attending as a Delegation

If you wish to attend a meeting as a delegation, please submit the Delegation Request Form PDF (30KB).  While anyone can attend a City Council meeting without notifying Administration, any advance notice is appreciated.

After a request is received, the matter will be placed on the Council or appropriate Committee agenda under the delegation portion. Delegations are requested to limit the number of spokes persons to two, and to keep presentation within 5-10 minutes. The speakers should be prepared to answer questions from Council or Committee members following their presentation.
