Double-Direct Town Hall Meeting

Oct. 6, 2016 – The public is invited to share their opinion on the proposal to change the
way St. Catharines residents elect regional councillors.

A town hall regarding the proposal to move to a double direct model will be held
Thursday, Oct. 20 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Robertson Hall inside the FirstOntario
Performing Arts Centre. Mayor Walter Sendzik will participate in a discussion on what
the change would mean for residents, followed by a question and answer session. The
City Clerk will also be in attendance to answer questions about the process.

No RSVP is required to attend.

Under the double direct model there would still be 12 members of St. Catharines City
Council, with each ward represented by two councillors. However, six of the councillors
would serve on both regional and city council, while the other six councillors would
serve only on St. Catharines city council.
