Presenting to Council

Making a Request to Appear Before Council


Send an email to the Legislative Coordinator. Please include an explanation of your item and why you wish it to be brought to Council. All requests to appear before Council must be submitted by the end of the day on Friday, 10 days before your desired Council meeting.

At that point, City of Chestermere staff will do their best to respond to your inquiry. If they are unable to provide an answer, you may be asked to prepare a letter or presentation for the next available Council meeting.

Presenting to the Council


You will be provided with a date and time for your presentation. You will typically be on the agenda at the beginning of the meeting (at either 1:00 pm or 3:00 pm). You will have 15 minutes to make a presentation. Following your presentation, Council may ask questions to clarify your concern.

Following your presentation, Council may either refer your item to staff or make a decision on your request at the 'New Business' portion of the agenda. It is not necessary for you to stay until they have addressed your item. Instead, staff members will inform you as to the outcome of your request or concern following the meeting.

If you have any questions, please contact the Legislative Coordinator by email or call (403) 207-7050.

Question Period
All Council Meetings are open to the public and people are free to come and go during the meeting. Question Period takes place at Regular Council Meetings and is an opportunity for any member of the public to come forward and ask a question of Council. Residents have five minutes to ask their question of Council.
