Public Town Meetings

Below are details of meetings called by the Town and other organizations for consultation with the public.

Municipal Council and Cobourg Police Service Call Public Meeting for Opioid Crisis

This meeting has been postponed.

Municipal Council, in partnership with the Cobourg Police Service,  called a Public Meeting/Committee of the Whole meeting regarding the Opioid Crisis for Wednesday, February 12th beginning at 6 p.m – but this has now been called offseemingly because not all stakeholders in the community would have been represented.

The public meeting was to take place at Victoria Hall, Concert Hall and open for all citizens, stakeholders and community partners to attend and would provide the public with an overview of the current situation and programs, educate and engage the public, and support developing partnerships for a coordinated community response at the local level.

The Town of Cobourg is also encouraging all community partners, stakeholders and organizations to participate in the summit. Please contact the Municipal Clerk to be included on the agenda by emailing blarmer@cobourg.ca

The agenda was to be published on February 6th (but was not) and would have been available on the Civic Web portal (https://cobourg.civicweb.net/portal/).

However, the Town is encouraging discussion on their Engage Cobourg site:
