Bylaws and Policies

Bylaws

Bylaws define the governing and operational rules of the Commission under which they must operate on behalf of the Village ratepayers. They specify when the board meets, when the AGM is held, when and how elections are held and other governance matters. Much of what would go into bylaws of any other organization is already defined in the Municipal Government Act (1998). New or amended bylaws have to be approved by the NS Minister of Municipal Affairs.
