How to be a Delegation

There are times when a citizen or a group of citizens may wish to express an opinion on an issue. Delegations are encouraged to address their concerns to either the Committee which is responsible for a particular issue or to County Council. To request a delegation to County Council or if you are unsure of where to direct your request, please provide your written request addressed to the Director of Corporate Services or Chief Administrative Officer. You may submit your request by:

  1. Mail to 30 Park Street, PO Box 70, Walkerton, ON N0G 2V0;
  2. Fax (519) 881-1619; or by
  3. Email: bcobean@brucecounty.on.ca or kcoulter@brucecounty.on.ca

In order to ensure that delegations are listed on agendas, all requests for delegation status must be received by the appropriate County staff not less than 5 business days prior to the meeting date of the Committee or Council. The request must include the name(s) of the speakers and the subject matter to be discussed. If written documentation is to be submitted, staff will advise of the appropriate number of copies to be provided. Delegations are limited to 10 minutes.
