Meet the Members of Council

Council and Staff are very proud to serve Ladysmith. We welcome comments and input from the citizens of our Town, and there are several ways you can do this:

  •  Write a letter or e-mail to Mayor & Council at towncouncil@ladysmith.ca
  • Attend Council meetings on the first and third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. If the regular meeting date falls on a statutory holiday, there will be no meeting that week.
  • Attend the Municipal Services meeting (composed of all Council members) on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. If the meeting date falls on a statutory holiday, there will be no meeting that week.
  • Apply to appear at a meeting as a delegation (download the Delegation to Council Application) (Applications must be in by 12 noon the Tuesday before the meeting requested)
  • Take part in the question period at the end of each Council meeting
  • Call the Mayor or any member of Council

Working together we can build an even better community!
