Special St. Catharines meeting to discuss double duty

St. Catharines City Council will hold a special meeting Monday, Feb. 6 to discuss the double duty model of council representation.

The council meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. inside Council Chambers, with double duty as the only item on the meeting agenda. 

Following speaking delegations about double duty, City Council will then vote on the motion to change the composition of Regional Council.

Residents looking to speak at the meeting can register with the Office of the City Clerk by calling 905.688.5601 ext. 1501 or emailing clerks@stcatharines.ca.

The public can attend the meeting in person, watch it on TV Cogeco or stream it online at www.stcatharines.ca/livestream.

For those unable to attend the meeting, feedback can be given by using an online form, available at www.stcatharines.ca/DoubleDuty

Under the double duty model there would still be 12 members of St. Catharines City Council, with each ward represented by two councillors. One councillor per ward would sit on City Council and one councillor per ward would sit on both City Council and Regional Council.
