An extensive review of an updated council-procedural bylaw at Monday's committee-of-the-whole Cobourg council meeting has resulted in an updated draft on which you can have your say at a Jan. 28 public meeting.

Among other things, the review resulted in such prospective changes as an adjustment to council and committee-of-the-whole meeting times and a regularly set open forum at which citizens can make comments or have questions answered.

The public meeting's agenda should be on the Town of Cobourg civic web portal ( by Jan. 10, and the town's press release sets out a number of ways citizens can participate and offer their input.
