How long does an issue stay open to vote on?

Right now, the City of Yellowknife generally announces its Council agenda the Thursday before the Monday Council (or Municipal Services Committee) meeting. IserveU strives to have these agenda items posted on the website by Thursday evening, giving citizens the same amount of time as Councillors to discuss, debate, and decide.  

Other major issues, which do not yet have a Council vote date assigned but are major public issues, will be given a poll and ongoing public discussion well before the Council decision. This could be for issues such as (previously) whether or not to keep the Con Mine headframe, or whether to place a bid for the Canada Winter Games.

Council agenda items will be posted the same day they are made available to councillors (generally the Thursday before the Monday Council meeting), and larger community issues will be posted for non-binding polling and public discussion before the Council debate is even scheduled.
