Delegations

The Town of Smithers is now accepting delegation requests for ZOOM meetings for presentations at Council Meetings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person delegation requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please submit a written letter addressed to Council, the Wednesday prior to the meeting date, to be included in the upcoming agenda package. Thank you for your understanding. 

The Town of Smithers' Council may hear two delegations per Council meeting. Each delegation is given up to five minutes to make their presentation to Council, after which Council members may or may not ask questions or provide comment with respect to the information presented. Delegations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once the two-delegation limit is met, additional requests are put forward to the next available Council meeting.

In order to appear as a delegation you must fill out an application form and return by email to front@smithers.ca, or in person at Town Hall, 1027 Aldous Street or by fax at 847-1601. You can also contact Administration for assistance at 847-1600.

Requests to appear as a delegation before Council must be received in Administration by 4:30 p.m. of the Wednesday prior to the Council meeting.

Council meetings begin at 6:30pm and delegations are usually heard at the beginning of the meeting.
