Address Council

Below are the opportunities to enable the public to address Town Council regarding items of municipal concern:

Individuals who submit letters of correspondence, delegation requests and other information to Council should be aware that it may be included on the agenda and that any personal information contained within their communications may become part of the permanent public record and therefore made available through the agenda process which includes publication on the Municipality's website.

Submit Correspondence to Council

Submit correspondence to Mayor and Council by:

  • Email: mayorandcouncil@viewroyal.ca
  • Fax: 250-727-9551 
  • Mail: View Royal Town Hall
    Attn: Mayor & Council

Once Council considers your correspondence, you will be advised of the decision made in response to your correspondence.

Presentations should be limited to a maximum of fifteen (15) minutes. Once Council considers and makes a decision on your issue, you will be advised of the decision made in response to your appearance as a petitioner or delegation.
