Meeting time and location

Town Council meets in the Council Chamber at the Town Office, 106 Main Street, Hafford.  
Council usually meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m.  The public is welcome to attend.

What does Town Council do?


Town Council operates in accordance with several provincial statutes, the main ones being The Municipalities Act and The Planning and Development Act. Town Council has only those powers which the Provincial Government has expressly given to it by statute. Town Council cannot make any decisions, or take any action, other than during an official meeting of Town Council.

How do citizens most often participate in Town Council's decisions?


You can participate in Town Council's decisions by:
Making presentations at public hearings held to get public input into bylaws and other significant decisions such as rezonings and discretionary use applications.

Making presentations at Council meetings as outlined below.

Sending written submissions to Council about reports or proposed bylaws.

Writing to Town Council on issues of concern.

How can I find out what is on the Council Agenda?


Agendas are normally drafted on the Friday preceding the meeting. They are available for viewing at the Town Office during office hours.

How can I get an item of concern before Town Council or a Committee?


If you know that a particular report or issue is to be discussed at either Town Council or one of its standing committees, you may request to make a presentation during that discussion. You must provide a letter to the Office of the Administrator

Box 220
Hafford, SK
S0J 1A0
Fax (306) 549-2338,

If you wish to speak on the matter, your letter MUST say so. You can also bring forward a new matter for Council's consideration by writing a letter to Town Council.

Your letter must clearly specify the issue which you wish to address, as well as a general outline of your concerns. Please note that, since all meetings of Town Council are public, your letter is considered a public document. You will have ten minutes to make your presentation. If you have more than one person wishing to speak you will only be allowed ten minutes for the entire delegation. Following your presentation, you may be asked questions from members of Council or the committee.
