A reminder of the new requirement approved by the Board that all
documents for consideration by the Governmental Advisory Committee
shall be available 15 working days prior to the beginning of the

available 10 working days prior to the beginning of the Sydney
meeting. This will apply to motions before Council.
Thank you Glen for passing on this message.
I too would like to see that we have motions ready 10 days
And it may helpful that the BOARD is making rules about
schedules, I certainly accept their right to make rules about
such requirements for themselves and for the GAC.
However since we have always worked on a 7 day before bases,
I will not exclude from consideration anything that makes the
7 day deadline though of course other council may object to
taking such a vote and then we will postpone as we have done
in the past.. any council votes will only be voted on at the
24 June meeting, so as I understand the
10 day would be 24 June
7 day would be 17 June
Of course the earlier a motion is posted the better, but with
trying to coordinate out work with things that are being done
by the board and its committees, and the fact that these this
are often delayed, it does not make sense to withhold work
from the face to face meeting.
