The Council of the Township of South Frontenac encourages community members to share their thoughts and information at Council meetings.

If the reason you want to request an appearance before Council is a concern or issue, we recommend you discuss your concern with Township staff first. Staff can usually provide valuable background information and recommend appropriate next steps to resolve the issue that may remove the need to go to Council or make for a more meaningful discussion with Council.

Delegations must be on topics that have come before Council or on Council's agenda. Unrelated topics require the delegate to be sponsored by a member of Council.

How to Request an Appearance before Council

If you wish to appear before Council, please submit a request in writing with a short summary of the content by 12:00 noon on the Thursday before the meeting you wish to appear. Requests can be sent by mail to Angela Maddocks, Clerk, Township of South Frontenac 4432 George Street, Box 100 Sydenham, Ontario K0H 2T0 Tel: (613) 376-3027 Ext 2225 Fax: (613) 376-6657 or by email, amaddocks@southfrontenac.net.  

If it is a topic that is not on the agenda, the Council member sponsoring your delegation must email the Clerk ahead of the meeting requesting you or your group be given delegate status.

Appearing before Council 

Public delegations are always the first item on the Committee of the Whole or Council Agenda. The Mayor will invite delegations to the Council table to speak. Delegation presentations should be maximum 10 minutes long (note delegations appearing at the request of the Township will not have a pre-set time limit). During the delegation, the Mayor and Council may ask questions. Once discussion is closed, Council may provide direction or refer the item to the appropriate department for further input or advice.

Follow-Up

Council normally takes some time to review items before deciding what action to take. If you would like clarification on what was discussed or decided, contact the CAO/Clerk's Department.

See By-law 2017-76, for full details on proceedings of Council.
