With the province now in Step 3 of the pandemic-related Restart Plan, the City of Kamloops is welcoming residents and the media to attend council meetings and public hearings in person.
The next council meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 20, at 1:30 p.m., followed by a public hearing at 7 p.m..
All meetings are currently being held in the Valley First Lounge at Sandman Centre, downtown next to Riverside Park, where there is space and the ability to physically distance.
The city is asking the public to follow all public health orders while attending public meetings, including wearing a mask in indoor public places until fully vaccinated and when physical distancing is not possible.
Following council meetings and public hearings online is still an option, with links available on the city’s website at kamloops.ca.
The city has added closed captioning to the online Zoom feed.
Those watching online have the same opportunity as those attending in person to take part in public input sessions by using the “raise your hand” feature to indicate a desire to speak.
Step-by-step instructions for participating in a public meeting via Zoom are available at Kamloops.ca/HowToZoom.
