1. Sounding Board Meeting (December 12)
The standard protocol at Committee meetings is that public delegates address questions to the Chair, not directly to staff. As such, we invite you to join us for a Sounding Board on December 12th at the Nepean Sportsplex in advance of the Standing Committee of Environmental Protection, Water and Waste Management meeting on the 17th. The purpose of this meeting is for city staff to:
- Provide an overview of the report (see link below under item 2) and supporting documentation
- Provide a forum for the Sounding Board to ask staff questions on the report
- Describe next steps and
- Understand how best to engage with the Sounding Board going forward
