Doors reopened to Leduc City Council Chambers

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

General public and presenters are now welcome to attend council and committee meetings in person starting Aug. 17; although for the health and safety of everyone involved live streaming will continue as the city encourages those who wish to take part to do so from the comfort of their home.

Pre-registration is recommended for any members of the public who wish to attend or participate in public commentary. This can be done through the City Clerk’s Office by emailing city_clerk@leduc.ca or calling 780-980-7132.

Other notable changes include:

  • Pre-screening for all attendees upon entry to the civic centre
  • Maximum of six members of the public can be seated within council chambers and up to 20 in the Lede Room to maintain physical distancing
  • In-person seating is first come, first served
  • GoTo Meeting will be used for remote participants so any in-person attendees in council chambers will need to bring their own mobile devices (phone, laptop, tablet) and headphones to hear the meeting. Should they not have these necessary items, they’ll be directed to the Lede Room where the meeting will be live streaming. Attendees can still participate in public commentary from the Lede Room
  • Although presenters can now participate in person (council chambers and Lede Room), they’re still encouraged to participate virtually through GoTo Meeting

Council and committee agenda packages are posted on the website along with previous meeting recordings.

For more information, call 780-980-7177 to speak to someone in the City Clerk’s Office.
