Sooke mayor seeks public input

Mayor Maja Tait is opening up the doors to the public further at Sooke Municipal Hall.

Tait has launched a public input session prior to each council meeting. The first meeting was held last Monday.

The purpose of the meetings is to allow residents a chance to engage in dialogue with the mayor and council about issues important to Sooke residents in a less formal environment than regular council meetings.

An informal “town hall” meeting format will be used to promote open dialogue.

Public input sessions will continue through April on a trial basis. If the public finds these sessions valuable, mayor and council will consider extending them on a more permanent basis.

Meetings are scheduled for Jan. 23, Feb. 14 and 27, March 13 and March 27 and April 10 and 24. The meetings go from 6 to 6:40 p.m. at District of Sooke council chambers, 2225 Otter Point Rd.
