Those virtual meetings must be recorded, and the minutes posted on a public website within 24 hours of the meeting.”
On March 30, 2020, Council also passed the following motion:
That Council adopt temporary procedures outside our normal G70 Meeting Policy for COVID-19 Protocol, to minimize meeting frequency and permit council to make timely decisions;
  • And further that we suspend in-person meeting to comply with the Ministerial order of 22 March 2020 and use the ZOOM application to meet;
  • And Further the chair will poll each member of council during the voting process, “Councillor how say you?”; and
  • And Further we suspend CAC meetings in favour of Council Meetings.

Despite many closures and cancellations, Council and staff continue to work to maintain essential services at this time.  Minutes, agendas, documents, videos and other records can be searched and downloaded here.

Kentville residents elect six councillors and the mayor every four years during municipal elections. This team meets each month during the Council Advisory Committee (CAC) meeting with directors to understand town operations, and to receive recommendations from staff.  During council meetings at the end of each month, council considers these and other recommendations and makes decisions in the best interest of the town. Both the CAC and council meetings are open to the public, either live at Town Hall or online using Facebook Live.  All council meetings and council meeting highlights are available on the town's YouTube channel.

The Valley Regional Hospital Foundation (VRH) has announced their first ever virtual fundraiser. Harvest for Health will be a virtual series of cooking classes taught by renowned and local celebrity chefs. This year’s featured chefs are Chef Jason Lynch of Le Caveau; Chef Chris Pyne of Founders House; Chef Daniel Frank of Troy; and Chef Peter Dewar, Head of the Culinary Program at NSCC.

Each cooking class will feature 3 dishes, all using a key ingredient that can be sourced in the Annapolis Valley. Classes will be every Thursday night in November, and participants can sign up for one or more of the classes. If purchasing all four classes, a bonus episode will be released just in time for Christmas! The cooking classes will be available by sign-up only through the VRH Foundation’s website, starting on October 16th.

You will also get a copy of the cooking class the day after the class has been released.

Class roster:
November 5th - Chef Jason Lynch - featured; SQUASH
November 12th - Chef Peter Dewar - featured; CARROTS AND PEACHES
November 19th - Chef Daniel Franck - ALL THINGS ONION

100% of your ticket sale will go towards the purchase of a new piece of diagnostic imaging equipment, a C-Arm.
The C-arm allows for live-time imaging during orthopedic surgeries, pacemaker insertions and some vascular exams. By providing surgeons with image guidance and immediate information on the placement of surgical implants, the entire surgical process is improved and patient safety is enhanced.

Join us for a series of delicious evenings from the comfort of your own home!
