Resident Participation

Print Version

Overview

When the Provincial Government updated the Municipal Government Act in 2017 it became a requirement that municipalities implement a Public Participation Policy that outlined how municipalities would inform and - where required - actively engage their public.

On June 13, 2018, Mountain View County Council approved Policy #1030 Public Participation.
