RH Council Meeting April 22, 2020

Follow up on Special Council Meeting April 22

RH Council Meeting Councillor David West's Member Motion to request that the LPAT hearing regarding the Yonge Bernard KDA be rescheduled to the Fall was moved to Closed Session due to solicitor client privilege.


The recorded vote to move the Member Motion to Closed Session was as follows: For Barrow, Perrelli, DiPaola, Beros, Muench & Lui. Against West, Cilevitz & Chan


The outcome in regards to Councillor West's motion was that the Clerk said "there is nothing to report out or consider on this motion in open session".


Councillor West brought forth this motion to request that not only the LPAT hearing be delayed but also to delay the May 13th Council meeting dealing with the Yonge Bernard KDA in order to facilitate proper live and in person delegation from citizens when COVID-19 restrictions may be eased. Given the reason why the LPAT hearing delay was requested why are residents now allowed to hear the outcome of the Closed Session regarding this Member Motion?
