Council Procedural Bylaw 370 Review – First and Second Readings: 

The Procedural Bylaw provides rules governing the proceedings and regular business of Council and Council Committees, and Council has flexibility in adopting any necessary changes.  

Bylaw 370 is commonly reviewed at the beginning of each new Council term and was most recently amended in November 2021. Following the approval of Bylaw 370.4, Administration will provide a "Quick Reference" guide to assist Councillors in its implementation.  

Council gave first and second reading to the Procedural Bylaw Amendment – Bylaw 370.4 as presented.
