  • By watching the recorded meeting by visiting the City of Steinbach website.


In-Person Safety Protocols

The meeting format will be modified to ensure that if members of the public attend at the place of the meeting, persons so attending will be required to follow required safety protocols prior to entry to City Hall and to maintain a separation of at least two metres (6 feet) from other persons who are attending.


Regarding Public Hearings:

Personal attendance at a public hearing during a regular Council Meeting is discouraged at this time.
