February 12, 2019; Liverpool, NS: Evening Council meetings will now be part of the schedule in Region of Queens Municipality. Following a one year trial period of quarterly evening Council meetings, a motion was approved at the February 12, 2019 regular Council meeting to change the scheduling of Region of Queens Council meetings to include one meeting each quarter to be held in the evening. Council will meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. in Council Chamber at the Municipal Building, 249 White Point Road, Liverpool, NS, and for the first meeting of each quarter of the fiscal year, an evening meeting will be held in a different geographical location in Queens; the meeting scheduled for the first Tuesday of April, July, October, and January will be held in West Queens, North Queens, East Queens, and South Queens, respectively.
“The changes to our meeting schedule are about making meetings more accessible to the public. In holding meetings in the evening, in locations across the Municipality, those who are unable to attend a meeting in Liverpool or during the daytime will have opportunities to attend and experience the process,” said David Dagley, Mayor of the Region of Queens Municipality. “Evening meetings are no longer in a trial stage. We hope to have more public engagement as people become aware of this change, and come out to a meeting.”
