A Framework for Municipal Governance
Legislation is the cornerstone of municipal governance. It ensures that County employees have the tools they need to operate in an efficient, effective manner while offering high quality services to ratepayers. Bylaws and policies assist in this regard.
Bylaws are regulations created and enforced in order to maintain the health, safety and well-being of the entire community. Policies are Council statements that guide decision making on a number of important municipal matters.
