Contacting Council

Letters and notes 



Do you have feedback on issues and decisions currently before Municipal Council?


Councillors can be contacted through email, phone call or the online Feedback Portal

Letters and notes can also be sent to the Legislative Services Coordinator at kbyrne@town.jasper.ab.ca. 

If you’d like to share a letter or note with all of Council and have it included in the public agenda package, please address it to “Mayor and Council” and include your mailing address (we’ll make sure not to share your personal address or email address in the agenda package). To be included in the agenda package, submit your letter by the Thursday before the meeting – public agendas are published on the Friday before Tuesday’s meeting, allowing Council and residents a few days to review the agenda.

Presentation tips 


Structure your presentation

You have a maximum of five minutes to speak.

Introduce yourself and briefly describe your relationship to the issue.

State your topic: If you are requesting action to address a certain issue, describe the issue and the action you wish Council to take. If you are requesting funding, state the amount and purpose of funding.

Provide background information when appropriate:
For instance, you may want to talk about how long the issue has been going on or how you or your organization has been affected. For funding requests, it is a good idea to provide your budget information and other revenue you have or are pursuing.

Set up for success: You may book a projector or laptop to assist with your presentation. Please book with the Legislative Services Coordinator prior to the meeting.

If you are asking for funding or to solve a problem, Council will base their decision on value for the community, available budget and/or available staffing. Some things to consider are: 

  • Do you have support from a sector in the community?
  • Does your request fit with Council's Strategic Priorities?
  • Can your request wait until budget deliberations (typically in the fall)?
