City Council Preview – What’s on the Agenda for the May 31 Meeting?

It’s the end of the month, and that means it’s time for the regular council meeting. Unless someone pulls an item from the consent agenda, it looks like most of the action from the meeting will be in closed session, and it’s technically not even council business. Here’s the agenda for the surprisingly brief last council meeting on the last day of the month.

NOTE #1: Delegates will be able to appear at this meeting via telephone, but you do have to register with the clerks office before 10 am on May 28. You can also submit written delegations and correspondences for agenda items.

NOTE #2: The meeting will be closed to the public, though it will be live-streamed on the City of Guelph’s website here.

CLOSED MEETING: Alectra Inc. Update – Before the regular meeting of city council, council will sit as the shareholder of Guelph Municipal Holdings Inc. The topic is mostly unknown because it’s a matter of advice that’s “subject to solicitor-client privilege, including communications necessary for that purpose; and trade secret or scientific, technical, commercial, financial or labour relations information, supplied in confidence to the municipality or local board, which, if disclosed, could reasonably be expected to prejudice significantly the competitive position or interfere significantly with the contractual or other negotiations of a person, group of persons, or organization.”

***There are no “Items for Discussion” presently on the council meeting agenda.

Consent Agenda items from the Committee of the Whole meeting on May 3. (Items can be pulled by a councillor seeking additional information, otherwise all items will be voted on as a slate without further debate.)

  • Additional Residential Dwelling Unit Registration By-law
  • Official Plan Review – Policy Directions
  • City Operations Campus – Business Case and Staging Plan
  • Core Asset Management Plans
  • 2020 Long-term Financial Statement – Reserves and Debt
  • 2020 Year-end Capital Budget Monitoring Report
