Sechelt is an Area within the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  As such, a member of Council is appointed as an Area Director to represent Sechelt on the Regional District Board, with Directors from seven other areas of the lower Sunshine Coast.  One alternate Director is also appointed. Effective December 4, 2014, Mayor Milne is Sechelt’s Area Director and Councillor Alice Lutes is our Alternate Area Director.

The public is welcome to attend Regular Council and Committee meetings.  A question and answer period is included at the end of each meeting, to allow members of the audience to ask questions about issues discussed.
