 What Happens at a Town Hall Meeting?

There is no set agenda at a Town Hall meeting. Instead, these more informal meetings provide community members an opportunity to voice their opinions, suggest new ideas, and ask questions of Council. Senior City staff are also available to respond to inquiries.

 How Do I Participate?

Those interested can participate in any one of the following ways:

  • In person – All are welcome, including spectators. Attendees can ask questions or provide comments and will be invited to the microphone for broadcasting purposes.
  • Online – The meeting will be broadcast live at www.coquitlam.ca/webcasts starting at 7 p.m. Online participants can submit questions through one of the following channels:
    • Email – Questions can be emailed to townhall@coquitlam.ca.
    • Facebook – Facebook users are encouraged to like our Town Hall Meeting event at www.facebook.com/cityofcoquitlam. Town Hall questions can be posted to the event wall any time prior to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11.
    • Twitter – Those on Twitter can tweet questions to @cityofcoquitlam or by using the hashtag #cqtownhall any time prior to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11.

Questions submitted online prior to and during the Town Hall Meeting will be presented to Council in the order they were received. Due to time limitations, if there are several questions that are similar, only one question may be put to Council. Every effort will be made to address as many as possible.

To ensure that everyone has access to responses to the questions submitted online, either Council or staff will respond during the meeting, which will be live broadcast at www.coquitlam.ca/webcasts.

Questions to Council must follow the City’s guidelines for a respectful meeting – details are available at www.coquitlam.ca/townhall.
