Tonight’s Council meeting will remain available to the public via the City’s live streaming service at www.westkelownacity.ca/webcasts so the public can still see and hear tonight’s proceedings. This necessary measure to restrict all in-person public access to the Council meeting, including the media, is based on the recommendations and mandates from health authorities to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Council members and staff who attend tonight’s meeting will ensure they adhere to the minimum 6-foot social distancing space requirement among the other recommendations from BC’s Provincial Health Officer.

“These are unprecedented times for everyone and keeping our community, staff and Council safe is of utmost importance to us as we prevent the spread of COVID-19,” says Mayor Gord Milsom. “It’s important for Council to keep moving forward to deliver our services to the public and, albeit slowly and through more digital methods, we can keep operations going as best we can. We’re grateful for the outpouring of public comments to ensure we all protect ourselves as we try to conduct a baseline level of city business during such a challenging time.”
