Shares borders with MD of Provost, Coronation and Castor

Kevin J Sabo For the Advance

Immediately following a Public Hearing on Oct. 2, the County of Paintearth Council passed several bylaws.

The Public Hearing, which is required under the Municipal Government Act (MGA), was held to open public discussion on Bylaws 663-18, 664-18,665-18,666-18,667-18, and 668-18. The six bylaws all have to do with inter-municipal development plans and inter-municipal collaborative frameworks between the County of Paintearth and the MD of Provost, the Town of Coronation, and the Town of Castor.

No public presentations were made at the hearing, and no written comments were submitted prior to their closing on Sept. 28.

With no public interaction on any of the above bylaws, Reeve Stan Schulmeister dissolved the public hearing after 15 minutes and reconvened the council meeting, where all six bylaws passed second and third readings, bringing them into law.

These bylaws are being developed as a requirement of the MGA requiring municipal governments that share borders to have development plans in place to aid in cross-jurisdiction development.
