Reminder: Visitor Screening Procedure prior to entry into Council Chambers

For immediate release: December 17, 2018 - 9:14am

As a reminder, in November 2018 City Hall implemented a quick and easy visual bag inspection for all visitors planning to attend Council Chambers for City Council or Committee Meetings.  The new screening procedure helps to ensure that Council Chambers remains open, accessible, safe and secure for all visitors and City employees.

Prior to entering Council Chambers, all visitors and employees must pass through the Visitor Screening Area for a visual bag check. If you are not carrying a bag, you will not need to stop at the Visitor Screening Area –you may proceed to Council Chambers.

On days when there is a long agenda or public hearings, it’s best to arrive at Council Chambers early to avoid delays.
