CONDUCT DURING COUNCIL MEETINGS
REMINDER FROM THE MAMOT


Sometimes, the council meetings can be tumultuous because of the intervention of certain citizens. It is important to remember that the municipal council (elected) represents the population and it makes the decisions. Citizens have the right to attend council meetings to be informed of the decisions and guidelines adopted by council and to ask questions, but they may not argue. It should also be noted that Council sits in front of the public and that it is not a public meeting where all may intervene at any time.

To improve the climate, here are a few recommendations that were made by the MAMOT to elected officials in a specific municipality.
  • Council meetings are public, however they are not a public forum.
  • The municipal council represents the population and takes the decisions.
  • The council meetings are not public meetings where citizens can actively participate. They may ask questions, during the question periods, but this is not an argumentative period.
  • The person presiding over the meeting or any other member of council may choose not to respond immediately if he does not have the required information. If the ques-tion requires research or further consultation, the response may be provided at a later meeting. 
  • The working sessions (caucus) are very important for the comprehension of the issues and to be able to discuss them before the public council meetings. However, decisions are made at the public meeting and not during the caucus.
According to the principle of municipal democracy, it is the elected representatives who make decisions. If a citizen wants to participate in the decision making or if they are not sat-isfied with the administration of the municipality, they have the opportunity to become a candidate in the next elections.

To support elected officials in their role during a municipal council meeting, the reference guide for elected municipal officials is a tool which is very useful. You may find the reference guide at the follow address:



In Potton, the regular meetings of Council are held the first Monday of each month at 7 pm with certain exceptions when a holiday falls on a Monday. These meetings are held at the Town Hall located at 2, Rue Vale Perkins, Mansonville (second floor, great hall of the Council). The work meeting of Council held prior to the regular meeting is no longer public (see below, work sessions).

Exceptionally in January of each year, the regular Council meeting is held the second Monday of the month; for 2017, this will fall on January the 9th.

The Council may, as needed, hold special meetings on different days or times. The meetings are convened and signified in compliance with the legal requirements. They are also announced via a "Public Notice", although this is not required by law. On average, the Potton Council holds four special meetings per year.

All decisions and filing made by Council at a public meeting are written in the minutes of the meeting. The minutes are published three working days after the meeting in draft form; they must be adopted by Council at the next meeting in order to be final. The adopted minutes are public documents which can be consulted and a copy of which can be obtained in person at the Town Hall, upon payment of fees for photocopies. Alternatively, they are listed and downloadable below.

WORK SESSIONS

The Council also holds working sessions during which all kinds of matters are considered and debated. No decisions are taken during those sessions, however, many resolutions for the regular meeting originate from those working sessions. Please note that by order of the current Council, these work sessions are not opened to the public.

Citizens who wish to meet with the Council are encouraged to make a formal request preferrably through the Secretary-Treasurer (450-292-3313 ext.223); such request can also be made to any member of Council.
