Caledon to hold in-person council and committee meetings starting next week
Published November 19, 2021 at 2:13 pm
The Town of Caledon is making a return to “normal” with a hybrid live-stream and in-person model for council and committee meetings.
After going virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, council will again be allowing residents to attend meetings in person starting on Tuesday.
Citizens who want to attend meetings in person need to register online or contact Caledon’s Council and Committee Services at (905)-584-2272 ext. 2366, or by e-mail at [email protected].
A live stream of meetings will still be available to the public through the town’s website.
Seating capacity will be limited due to COVID-19 safety protocols, and anyone attending in person will be required to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 along with a government-issued identification.
Participants will also need to complete a required COVID-19 screening.
Staff will be on hand to ensure visitors are able to enter, validate vaccination certificates and find their way safely to the Council Chamber.
Caledon Mayor Allan Thompson said the health and safety is a top priority for the Town as it launches the new hybrid in-person and online system.
“My Council colleagues and I appreciate the importance of transparency, accountability and public input to the process, and providing both in-person and virtual options ensures that proceedings are accessible to as many people as possible,” Thompson said in a statement.
The new hybrid meeting model will launch on Nov. 23 at 10 a.m. at a special Council meeting and workshop on the Official Plan Review
