Council Meetings to be Held Remotely
The Government of Alberta’s Public Meeting Procedures (COVID-19 Suppression) Regulation remains in effect to allow Council meetings to be conducted by entirely electronic means to help control the spread of COVID-19. All attendees of meetings held in person must wear masks and socially distance, as required by public health orders.
Until further notice, County Council meetings will be hosted via Zoom to facilitate remote attendance and presentation. Zoom is a free service that allows you to attend a meeting via a computer or telephone. When you click on a given meeting in the County's Meeting Calendar, you will see the links and directions to join in via Zoom.
Some Zoom Basics
Zoom is a popular, free and easy-to-use service that helps people view, listen to, and participate in meetings remotely. When the County advertises a remote meeting via Zoom, it will include a link to join the meeting via a web browser, plus and a list of telephone numbers for those who prefer to listen to the meeting on their phone.
To accommodate participants with varying levels of connectivity, the default mode for joining County meetings via Zoom is with video disabled.
