Council Strategic Plan


Council Meetings

Cardston County's Council meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month. Occasionally we require a second meeting during the month which will be held after the Municipal Planning Commission meeting on the 4th Monday of each month.

Council Meeting agendas will be posted to Cardston County's Facebook and on our hompage as early as possible.
The minutes from Cardston County Council Meetings are approved at subsequent Council Meetings. The minutes are posted here as soon as they are approved by Council.
