Town of Hawkesbury Council Meeting

 

It's important to keep track of decisions that have a direct impact on our waste services, finances, recreation, municipal infrastructure, snow removal and more. Don't miss the regular Town of Hawkesbury’s council meetings. They take place on the 2nd Monday of each month, starting at 6:30 p.m.

There are two ways to attend the Town’s council meetings.

1- In person: At the Council Chamber located at Town Hall (600, rue Higginson, Hawkesbury).

2- At home via live broadcast on our YouTube channel. //www.youtube.com/@HawkesburyON

Why do we need to inform you about the decisions made by Town Council?

1- Municipal council meetings allow citizens to follow the deliberations and decisions made by their elected representatives, thereby promoting transparency in the decision-making process, and ensuring a degree of accountability on the part of elected officials to their constituents.

2- By watching the meetings, citizens can better understand the problems, projects and issues affecting their local community, staying informed about municipal developments and initiatives.

3- Some people watch council meetings to feel more involved in their community's affairs, which can inspire more active participation.

4- Citizens can use information from meetings to express their opinions and ask questions, strengthening the bond between elected officials and the population.

5- Watching council meetings can be an opportunity for civic education, enabling citizens to learn more about how local government works, democratic processes and decision-making mechanisms.
