OHSWEKEN — After a lengthy departmental review session, Six Nations of the Grand River council says they are changing the public meeting schedule in an effort to improve communications.

Starting January 2020 General Council will be reduced to two bi-monthly meetings — on the second and fourth weeks of each month.

The former Committee of the Whole has been dissolved and issues are being routed to two new dedicated committees: Finance and Political Liaison.

The finance committee will meet on the first and third Mondays of each month starting at 9:00 a.m.. The political liaison committee will meet on the fourth Monday of each month starting at 9:00 a.m.. The political liaison committee will address situations that involve SNGRs ongoing political relationships with provincial and federal officials.

Departmental issues will be heard during SNGR’s Human Services, Building and Infrastructure, Corporate and Emergency Services and Justice Committees on rotating Wednesdays throughout the month.

SNGR has also determined that in order to carry out business with General Council, Finance and the Political Liaison committee — a quorum of 5 council members plus the chair need to be present.

The changes are expected to streamline and expedite communications between departments and to the public.

The public meeting schedule changes are on an interim basis for the next few months while SNGR awaits the results of a final report on its departmental and external committees review.

Due to council’s holiday shutdown this month the schedule is shifted. The first General Council meeting of 2020 is scheduled for Tuesday, January 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Central Administration building in Ohsweken. The second General Council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 28.
