How to submit an idea to the Livery Transport Advisory Committee

​Your ideas and input help the Livery Transport Advisory Committee make informed recommendations to City Council on the vehicle-for-hire industry. Members of the public or industry can provide input through written or oral submissions, or meeting participation.

Written submissions

Written submissions can be emailed or delivered/mailed to the office of Livery Transport Services (100, 2116 - 27 Avenue NE Calgary, Alberta T2E 7A6). Submissions must be typed or legibly written, include your full name and a mailing and email address. 

Livery Transport Advisory Written Submission Template

For a written submission to be included in a Livery Transport Advisory Committee agenda, it must be provided at least 10 days before a regular meeting.

When the Livery Transport Advisory Committee receives a written submission, the Chair may:

  • Include it on the agenda of the next regular meeting (in full or as a summary);
  • Refer it to Administration for a report back to the Livery Transport Advisory Committee; or
  • Refer it to Administration for reply.

If you miss the submission deadline and your matter is urgent, a Livery Transport Advisory Committee member may wish to bring your submission forward. The item can only be added to the agenda if two-thirds of the Committee agrees. Twenty copies of the submission will need to be provided.

Oral submissions

Oral Submissions are part of the agenda of any regular meeting. When the Committee asks for oral submissions, add your idea to the agenda and be prepared to present to the Livery Transport Advisory Committee. Individuals are given a maximum of five minutes to present to Committee and answer questions they may have.

After an oral submission presentation, a Committee Member may make a motion to:

  • Receive your idea for information;
  • Adopt or amend the recommendations;
  • Refer it to Administration for a report back to the Livery Transport Advisory Committee; or
  • Refer it to Administration for a reply.

Meeting participation

During a regular Livery Transport Advisory Committee meeting, there are opportunities to provide input after an agenda item is presented. Individuals are allowed up to five minutes to speak for or against a report or submission.

Things to remember:

  • All presenters must sign in and state their name to the Committee.
  • Presenters have up to five minutes to present.
  • Prepare your thoughts in advance. Speaking from an outline will help you remember all your important points.
  • Avoid phrasing your presentation in the form of questions. The Committee is there to hear what you have to say, not to engage in debate.
  • Input can be sent to the Livery Transport Advisory Committee Questions can be sent to Livery Transport Services.
