Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Quinton Flint told council about future meetings and what is currently set in policy and bylaw.
As of the meeting on Mon. March 23, no bylaw or policy depicted the outlines for having an online meeting but with COVID-19 now firmly in Canada and prohibiting gatherings larger than five people, the CAO found it necessary to address it.
He agreed to adjust a bylaw for council review at the next meeting on April 13 as a permanent fixture as future emergencies may arise aside from the coronavirus.
Coun. Vickey Horkoff asked that only the town be able to record audio for their meetings, using “only council chambers authorized equipment.”
CAO Flint would also add that the recordings would be available online as well.

Busy Beaver Daycare request
Busy Beaver Daycare is an accredited daycare in Castor.

Since the request, it has been postponed due to COVID-19.
