City Council Resumes Sessions in Virtual Mode
The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has made the decision to resume its City Council meetings in virtual mode, beginning with the next meeting scheduled for Monday, September 21.
The increase in cases of COVID-19 and the Level 2 Early Warning status (yellow level) declared by the Quebec government for the Montérégie region, combined with the small size of the council room which restricts the number of citizens who can attend the meeting, are all reasons that justify this decision. "While the last two council meetings were held in public, it was obvious that the number of spaces which was limited to eight, due to physical distancing, was not enough to allow all those interested to attend the meeting," said Mayor Guy Pilon.
The sessions will continue to be broadcast live and will later be available on the Csur la télé website. Citizens will still be allowed to speak if they wish to do so but will have to wait until the telephone number appears on the screen during the second question period. Citizens also have up until Monday at 3 pm to send their questions in via e-mail. These will be read at the beginning of the session.
For more information on the Council meetings and to view the agenda, citizens are invited to visit the Public meetings page of the City's website.
