Nomination deposit bylaw
The Nomination Deposit Bylaw is a bylaw that governs the process of nominees, submission of paperwork and more for the upcoming municipal election.
The nomination period began on Jan. 1 as new rules were enacted by Municipal Affairs.
The bylaw was given all three readings after administration shared that a sentence had been missed previously.
The addition of allowing debit and credit card payments for the 2021 general election year has now been included.
Council passed two motions.
The first was to correct a small error in calculations for the Provincial Education Requisition Credit (PERC) application in the amount of $2.33 and the other was to write off three tax roll accounts in the amount of $57,109.46 and apply the PERC for $8,682.43.
