Communicating with Council
Is there a particular Councillor that represents my neighbourhood?
As Red Deer is not divided into constituencies or wards, each member of Council represents the community as a whole. This means that you are welcome to contact any member of Council to discuss your opinions or concerns.
Does talking to a Councillor about an item/issue mean it will be considered at a Council Meeting?
No. There is a procedure you will need to follow in order for an item to be considered at a Council Meeting (see Getting on the Agenda). In many instances, issues can be dealt with administratively and do not need to be placed on a Council Agenda.
How can I reach a member of Council?
Councillors are accessible via telephone or e-mail (see Mayor & Councillor Profiles).
You can also write to members of Council at:
c/o Legislative Services
Red Deer, AB T4N 3T4
The Legislative Services Department will ensure your concerns are forwarded as requested.
