Proposed Bylaws – July 11, 2018 Town Council Meeting

The below draft Elections Bylaw will be tabled at the July 11 Council meeting for first reading.  The majority of the provisions for the election process are contained in the Municipal Government Act and regulations thereto.  The bylaw addresses those issues that are at the discretion of Council and does not differ materially from the processes that were in place for previous town elections.  One notable exception, however, is the election expense and contribution provisions, which are new requirements under the Act, and which do not and cannot take effect until after the November 2018 election.  Please contact Chief Administrative Officer, Robert Hughes by email at rhughes@townofstratford.ca or by phone at 902-569-6251 if you have any questions or comments on the proposed bylaw.

Proposed Election Bylaw: Bylaw 43 – Election Bylaw

The following Smoke Free Bylaw will also be tabled at the July 11 council meeting for first reading. The Town currently has a policy which bans smoking on town properties with the proposed bylaw allowing for enforcement of the bylaw. The bylaw demonstrates that Stratford takes seriously the health effects of smoking and second-hand smoke. The Town engaged residents through our annual survey on this issue and residents showed strong support for banning smoking on Town properties with somewhat lesser support on private property. The Town will conduct further consultation with residents, commercial land owners and residential rental property owners, to explore the possibility in the future of regulating smoking in privately-owned outdoor spaces such as parking lots, golf courses, and other public areas.
