Council and Committee Meetings

| |


The Town of Prescott is governed by a Council of 7 members - a mayor and 6 Councillors elected at-large every four years. The current term of Council is from December 1, 2018 to November 14, 2022 with the next election scheduled to take place on October 24, 2022.

Council is the formal municipal decision-making body of the Town of Prescott. Decisions made by Council have a direct impact on the residents of Prescott. While Council oversees the town's staff, operations, and services to ensure tax dollars are spent effectively and efficiently, their main role is to lead the town into the future through strategic planning and community development to create a safe, healthy, and economically vibrant community.  

Drawing upon input from local residents and businesses, Council must set policies and by-laws to reflect the community's standards and desires for the future. Council is committed to working in a very open and transparent way through Council and Committee meetings, all open to the public.
