Council Meeting Participation During the COVID Health Emergency
The City of Maple Ridge will gradually increase interactions at City Hall consistent with the BC Public Heath recommendations. Based on renovations made to Council Chambers to comply with earlier heath orders there is capacity for 7 members of the public to participate in-person in Council Chambers at this time. The City of Maple Ridge will continue to use virtual tools to host the meetings and public access will continue electronically.The 7 available seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Members of the public can sign up in advance to reserve those seats by calling 604-463-5221. We will be doing a health screen for people attending in person and we are asking that people wear a mask consistent with the recommendations in Step 3 of the BC Restart Plan. During the Council summer break we will develop the plan for September and the future based on the heath orders and WorkSafeBC guidance. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
