Niagara-on-the-Lake’s council chambers will be reopening to the public on Aug. 22 after  two years of strictly online virtual meetings.

Town hall will also be open to everyone for council, committee of the whole and planning committee meetings.

Live webcasting will continue for those who want to watch meetings from home.

“(It) cannot be happening soon enough,” Lord Mayor Betty Disero said in an email to The Lake Report. “I am thrilled that we will be able to see the public in the council chamber once again.”

A maximum of 30 people will be allowed in the chambers, not including council members and staff.

The capacity limits are to make sure the town’s reopening efforts are safe and gradual, a town statement said.

Anyone who wants to attend must register via email to the town clerk’s office at clerks@notl.com by noon on the day of the meeting.

If the capacity limit is reached, those who registered will be notified via email.
