Draft recommendations

Once a draft recommendation has been approved at a Council meeting, it is published on the web service www.otakantaa.fi and can be commented on. In addition to the draft recommendation, its background memo and any other drafting and background documents are also published.

Notification of opening a recommendation for comments is given on the Council's home page and by an e-mail message that users can subscribe to on the home page. The time reserved for submitting comments usually is a few weeks.

After this time has elapsed, the comments received are examined, and the draft recommendation is amended as necessary. The Council then makes a final decision to approve the recommendation, which is subsequently published on the Recommendations page
