COVID-19 RESPONSE: In alignment with Phase 1 of Ontario’s Framework for Reopening the Province, the Public Participation Meeting process has been reintroduced with modifications to protect the health and well-being of members of the public and City employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Public Participation Meeting Process
As part of the City’s ongoing efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Public Participation Meeting process has been modified. Those wishing to take part in a Public Participation Meeting at City Hall must adhere to all health precautions in place, including following all physical distancing and gathering guidelines. Public Participation Meeting Process
- Members of the public are asked to pre-register to speak in person at a PPM. Speakers will be limited to five minutes of verbal presentation.
- Pre-register by calling 519-661-2489 ex. 7100 or by emailing PPMClerks@london.ca. Please indicate the PPM subject matter when contacting the Clerk’s Office. Registrants will be confirmed.1
- When pre-registering, residents will be prompted to answer COVID-19 health screening questions and to self-screen prior to entering City Hall.
