Public consultations scheduled on Charter for CBRM
Public consultations on the development of a charter for Cape Breton Regional Municipality will be held in January.
A charter for the municipality would be designated by provincial legislation. A charter is the Crown’s ability through its authority, the Province of Nova Scotia, to convey or grant authority, rights and privileges to the CBRM for the purposes of governance for better social, public and economic outcomes. These public sessions are an opportunity to provide input for the crafting of a charter for CBRM and the information gathered will be made available to the provincial government.
Two sessions are scheduled:
The first session will be held on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall.
The second session will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 1:30 pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall.
Presentations are limited to ten minutes in length. The Clerk’s Office will need a copy of any materials you are presenting in advance of the meeting date you will attend. Deadlines are Wednesday, January 10 for the first meeting on January 15 and Wednesday, January 17 for the second meeting on January 20.
