Puslinch Township Prepares For Electronic Council Meetings

Puslinch Township Crest The COVID-19 situation continues to change rapidly, and as a Township, we are doing our best to adapt how we conduct business and serve our community, while protecting the safety of our staff and residents. Township officials are working closely with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health to respond to the situation.

The Municipal Act, 2001 has been amended to provide that, during municipal or provincial emergencies, members of councils, local boards and committees who participate electronically in open and closed meetings may be counted for the purposes of quorum. As such, the Township of Puslinch is making every effort to ensure public participation while conducting Council Meetings electronically.

How can the Public participate?

  • Notice of each meeting will be posted on the Township of Puslinch website. The notice will include the date and time of the meeting, the meeting platform, and when the recording of the meeting will be available for viewing.
  • Agenda material will be posted on the website approximately 2 days prior to the meeting.
  • A recording of the meeting will be posted on the Township website immediately following the meeting.

  • As is normal practice, Meeting Minutes will be posted to the Township website once approved by Council.
