Winter Recess Deadlines for the Executive

Below are filing guidelines related to the Council's upcoming recess.

Winter recess begins on December 23rd and the next business day will be January 3rd. Legislation may not be filed during recess.

Contracts may be filed by 4pm on December 21st. The count will start on December 22nd and continue to run through recess. Contracts must be complete and accurate for the filing to be accepted to begin the review period on December 22nd. Any contracts filed after the deadline will be rejected and will require re-filing in January.

Reprogrammings and GBMs may be filed by 4pm on December 8th. The count will start on December 9th and will be deemed approved on December 23rd. Any reprogrammings or GBMs filed during the period of December 9th - 22nd will be deemed approved in January 2022 because recess tolls the review period.

Emergency contract approval legislation to be considered at the January 4th Legislative Meeting may be filed by 4pm on December 22nd. All other emergency legislation may be filed no later than 10 am on January 3rd (this is an exception to Council Rules to accommodate for the recess).

Please file all measures via LIMS e-filing portal at
