Annual Organizational Council Meeting
During the annual Organization Meeting, Council comes together to re-access and assign positions within Council and other extended duties. This includes appointing a Reeve, Deputy Reeve, Chair positions on internal committees and representatives for many local Boards.
This meeting also reaffirms Council Policies.
The annual Organization Meeting takes place on a date in October. This date is set during the September Regular Council Meeting and is not the Regular October Council Meeting date.
Special Council Meetings
Special Council Meetings can be called by either the Reeve or the Chief Administrative Officer of the County of Stettler No. 6. These meetings require public notification, which occurs via our website, social media and the County of Stettler bulletin board.
These meetings often feature only one or two items on the agenda. Items that require a quick decision.
Committee of the Whole
Committee of the Whole are more informal Council meetings. These meetings offer the Council Members time and space to hold longer, detailed discussions and draft future policies.
Committee of the Whole meetings take place beginning at 10 am on the fourth Thursday of each month.
