The role of the City of Leduc Council is to provide leadership to Leduc's municipal corporation. Members of council are responsible for the overall direction of the municipality through their role as policy makers. Policies set by city council are guidelines for administration to follow as it handles daily operations of the municipality.
Council has seven elected members, one mayor and six councillors. Municipal elections are held every four years and council members are all voted in 'at large' which means by all residents who vote. All council members are part-time.
Council meets regularly on Monday evenings starting at 5 p.m. for Committee-of-the-Whole, followed by the regular council meeting at 7 p.m. to discuss issues, set priorities, establish policy and make decisions based on information from many groups and citizens. Subject matter experts, along with the city's departmental general managers, attend council meetings to present report information and answer questions from council.
Members of the public are welcome to attend all council meetings and can speak to items not on that evening’s agenda during 'public commentary.' The public are also welcome to speak at public hearings, which are held during council meetings. The public are welcome to attend the Committee-of-the-Whole and Strategic Planning Committee meetings as observers only. Please refer to the council, Committee-of-the-Whole and Strategic Planning Committee Meeting Schedule for meeting dates and times.
The 2019 - 2022 Strategic Plan describes a long-term vision for Leduc and identifies four distinct areas where city council will focus its efforts.
