Council Meetings

Serving the needs of residents, visitors and businesses since 1762

Sackville Town Council meets twice each month. You’re invited to attend.

Our Discussion Group and Regular Town Council Meetings, held on the first and second Mondays of each month, are open to the public. Find our next meeting time and join us at Town Hall. Archives of previous meeting minutes are also available.

Discussion Group

Our Discussion Group meetings are Special Council Meetings, which take place on the first Monday of each month in the Town Hall Council Chambers at 31C Main Street. Start time is 7:00 p.m. These are public meetings, and generally serve as information meetings regarding various subjects. It is often the first opportunity for an item or issue to be presented to Council and therefore, decisions are not generally made at this meeting. This allows time for Councillors to reflect on the information and/or seek further information as necessary in order to assist in their decision making at a later date, of which normally occurs during the Regular Monthly Council meetings.

Discussion Group meetings are also open to the public to make a presentation to Council. Interested individuals / groups are asked to submit a written request to the Clerk’s Office no later than two weeks prior to the meeting date in order to be confirmed on the agenda and allow appropriate notice of the agenda. The Town of Sackville will make every effort possible to accommodate requests in a timely manner and topics will be placed on upcoming agendas subject to availability. Given the number of items on most agendas, presentations are generally limited to 10 minutes.

Regular Town Council Meetings

The Regular Monthly Council Meeting occurs on the second Monday of the month with a 7:00 p.m. start time. The Regular meeting is also a public meeting and is the opportunity for Town Council to conduct their business. During our Regular Meetings, monthly departmental reports are presented and decisions of Council are addressed by way of motions.

Other Special Meetings

Town Council may also hold other Special Meetings from time to time to consider matters that require immediate attention and/or a decision. With the exception of Emergency Meetings, all Special meetings are advertised 48 hours in advance via local media, as well as through the Town’s social media venues. All Special Meetings are held in the Town Hall Council Chambers at 31C Main Street unless otherwise noted.

In-Camera Meetings

In accordance with section 10.2(4) of the Municipalities Act, Town Council may go “In Camera” for confidential purposes to discuss matters that are legal, human resources, or property related in nature, as well as those that pertain to a third party agreements. Council may decide to go “In Camera” during a Regular or Special Council meeting. “In Camera” meetings are not open to the public, and Council is only permitted to provide direction for follow up on such matters. All matters requiring a decision of Council must be made during a public meeting of Council.
