Presentation tips

  • Introduce yourself and the topic: briefly describe your relationship to the topic.
  • What are you asking Council to doDescribe the action you wish Council to take. 

(If you are requesting funding, state the amount and purpose of funding. It is a good idea to provide your budget information and other revenue you have or are pursuing). 

Why is this important? 

  • What is the value or benefit of this for the community? 
  • How long has the issue been going on? 
  • How does this affect you or the community?
  • Do you have support from other community groups? Does this fit with Council's Strategic Priorities?

If you are asking for funding to solve a problem, Council will base their decision on whether we have the budget and staff to follow throughThink about whether your request can wait until Council is setting a budget for the following year (typically in the fall).
