Carleton Place council authorized the cancellation of an upcoming regular council meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 28 due to the Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA) Conference that runs Feb. 26 to March 1, 2017.

Council says meetings during this conference have usually been cancelled since it’s hard to maintain a quorum. Quorum is the minimum number of councillors that must be present at any of its meetings to make the proceedings of that meeting valid. Council is still working out details in terms of which councillor(s) will attend the conference.

The OGRA Conference will be hosted that Fairmont Royal York in Toronto. Regular meetings will continue after the conference.
